ISS' Website-
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates


The Office of International Student Services (ISS) understands the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation has many implications for Case Western Reserve University's international students.  We have created a webpage where we are compiling answers to questions and other important information to help our students transition to remote learning.  We will update this website as needed.  Please review the content there regularly.

While ISS staff will be working remotely until further notice, I want to assure you that we are here to support you.  Please continue to contact us with your questions through email at international@case.edu, connect with us through virtual advising, and request appointments as needed.

We hope you stay safe, stay healthy, and stay in touch with us!

Tax Deadline in April:      Forms & Sprintax Availablity

Sprintax is a tax-return-preparation software program designed primarily for international students and other educational visa holders. It can help you prepare your U.S. federal income tax return and assist you in preparing Form 1040NR or 1040NR-EZ.

You may access Sprintax and begin preparing your tax return by following these steps:

  1. Register and follow the simple instructions
  2. Complete the online questionnaire
  3. Enter Case Western Reserve University’s unique code.  This code was sent to you via email on February 12.
  4. Sprintax will prepare your tax return

If Sprintax determines that you are required to file state taxes, you will have the opportunity to prepare those state taxes. You are not required to use Sprintax to file state taxes but, remember, it is your responsibility to comply with the law and properly file all taxes.

If by now, you haven't received your W-2 from CWRU, contact Payroll at payroll@case.edu. If you were authorized to work for another employer, you should contact their payroll department.

For more information regarding the 1098-T, please visit Financial Services website to download the Nonresident Alien 1098-T Request Form.

1042-S forms will be prepared by mid-March and sent to students by Payroll. Please contact Payroll if you have questions about the issuance of your 1042-S.

For more information, visit our Information on Filing Taxes page.
