Tax Filing - Do I Have to File a Tax Return?
Why Should I File a Tax Return?
It is each foreign national’s responsibility to file appropriate U.S. federal and state tax forms each tax year.
Failure to file a federal tax return could jeopardize chances of obtaining approval for future visa or residency status changes.
If you have not filed a tax return for prior years, you may still do so. Include a letter explaining why you did not file.
For more information about federal tax filing obligations, see the IRS website at: http://www.irs.gov.
