The Internal Revenue Service requires that international students, who wish to be considered for tax exemption, submit a completed Form 8233 each calendar year to the Payroll Office. Publication 901 contains country specific tax treaty details related to personnel services income and scholarship income earned in the United States. Tax treaties offer a reduced rate, or possibly a complete exemption, from United States income tax withholding for residents of certain countries. International students that do not wish to complete Form 8233 or are not eligible for a treaty exemption are required to review IRS Notice 1392.
