Resident Aliens for Tax Purposes

Persons who are residents for tax purposes for tax year 2016 who are not still eligible for tax treaty benefits may find tax return preparation assistance in the VITA Site offered by the College of Human and Environmental Sciences at Mizzou.   This is also a free service and no appointment is necessary.

Residents who have tax treaty benefits for 2016

Residents who are eligible for tax treaty benefits may come for help on Thursdays and Fridays ONLY during the NRA tax Return help sessions. Schedule

Residents Who Need ITIN for Spouse or Dependents 

Residents who have a spouse or dependents who do not have a US Social Security number will need to submit an application for an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) for family members listed on the return who do not already have an SSN or ITIN.  Assistance with the ITIN application will be provided in the NRA Taxation Office at Mizzou.  Please e-mail to Judy Todd to schedule an appointment.  The appointment should take place after the tax return paperwork has been prepared so that the original tax return can be brought to the ITIN appointment.

Residents with Tax Treaty Benefits Available

Residents for tax purposes who were eligible for tax treaty benefits during 2016 will need to e-mail Judy Todd requesting a Form 8833If you are NOT eligible for tax treaty benefits, you do NOT need a Form 8833.  The purpose of this form is to specify tax treaty eligibility, since this information is not solicited on resident tax return forms as it was on the nonresident forms that may have been used in previous tax years. The Form 8833 will be sent by e-mail in PDF format to be printed by the employee before they go for tax return preparation assistance.  Without that form, the VITA volunteers will not be able to accurately complete the tax return if treaty benefits are being claimed.
