TaxSlayer is the primary tax software for the 2021 tax season but this software and directions for non-resident filers to use it is only given through the FSA Program. Taxslayer is a web-based tax return preparation program designed to assist international students and scholars in preparing  correctly such U.S. federal income tax forms as the 8843 and 1040NR.

Special access for U of Iowa students to TaxSlayer will become available through the non-resident FSA Program (please see the workshop page for updates).

If you were present at the University of Iowa during 2020 and ended your academic program during that time, then your HawkID may have 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. This applies most commonly to F-1 students on OPT or J1 scholars who were present in the US during any part of 2020.
