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.
Free access to Windstar is now available to currently active scholars (J-1) who posess a valid Hawk ID. Current scholars at the University of Iowa whose Hawk ID password has expired should contact ITS Hawk ID Support to reset their password.
If you were present at the University of Iowa during 2013 and ended your academic program during that time, then your HawkID has likely 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 left the US or your scholarly activity with the Univeristy of Iowa has ended. Scholars in this situation should contact firstname.lastname@example.org and request a separate individual access code to activate (or re-activate, if returning) the software through a separate Windstar site.
