Income Tax Return Preparation Services for Tax Year 2016
Notre Dame/Saint Mary’s College Tax Assistance Program (TAP) offers free tax return preparation services to international visitors. All international visitors in F-1 or J-1 status MUST file a tax return, even if they earned no income during 2016.
Tax services to international clients are by appointment only. Due to the variety of tax situations, all clients are required to complete our Intake Form and schedule an appointment through Google Calendar, both of which may be viewed on our website: tap.nd.edu. Appointments may be scheduled after February 1. Please follow all instructions carefully.
Appointments will be offered from February 20, 2017, through April 13, 2017. Appointments will not be available on Fridays, weekends or during Interterm (March 6-10) or Spring Break (March 13-17).
You must complete and fill out the TAP Intake Form, available on our website. You must also bring several documents with you to your appointment. These are listed on our website. Please see this link: http://tap.nd.edu/international-program/what-to-bring/. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We strongly encourage all international visitors to use the TAP’s services. We also caution everyone against either using electronic tax preparation software, such as Turbotax, or using commercial tax preparation services. Most software and most commercial services are not familiar with tax provisions applying to international visitors, and severe financial and immigration issues may result from using them.
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com , or call us at 574.631.6142 or 574.631.1197. For more information about the TAP, visit https://tap.nd.edu/international-program/.
We look forward to helping you prepare your 2016 income tax returns!

One week into her senior year, Natasha Reifenberg headed to an academic health conference in El Salvador, presenting a policy brief based in research she had been involved in for the last two years. An opportunity usually reserved for distinguished academics, the trip was just one of many highlights in an outstanding undergraduate career that includes internships at the Global Fund for Women and United Nations Development Program and independent research opportunities centered around women’s issues and rights. Reifenberg attributes her accomplishments to her education in Notre Dame’s College of Arts and Letters — particularly her philosophy major.
When Francesco Tassi arrived at Notre Dame, he was sure he would major in finance. But a lecture on refugees set him on a different path — one that led him to travel through Italy for three months to study refugee integration firsthand. Tassi, who was born in Italy and moved to the United States in third grade, traveled widely in high school and spent time living with host families in several countries. Those experiences sparked a passion for learning about and understanding cultures.
