Tax Software

Windstar FNTR (Foreign National Tax Resource) Tax Software is a web-based tax return preparation software program designed to assist international students and scholars in preparing U.S. federal income tax forms 1040NR and 1040NR-EZ.

Access to Windstar is now available to currently enrolled international students (F-1, J-1) and active scholars (J-1) who posess a valid Hawk ID. Currenty enrolled students whose Hawk ID password  has expired should contact ITS Hawk ID Support

If you were present at the University of Iowa during 2013 and ended your academic program during that time, then your HawkID has been discontinued and the Windstar link above may not grant you access. However, you are still eligible for access to the free software even if you have graduated or left the US.  Students in this situation should contact ip-vita@uiowa.edu (include your student ID number) and request a separate individual access code to re-activate (or activate, if it is the first time) the software through a separate Windstar site
