Students with no gross income who are classified as Nonresident Aliens for the tax year must ONLY file the Form 8843. This form is required to claim exemption from counting days of presence toward becoming a Resident for tax purposes. Generally this form can be completed without the assistance of a professional or software program. ISAP cannot answer questions on how to complete the Form 8843. Instructions on where to mail the Form 8843 can be found on page 3 of the form. For further information please see www.irs.gov .

The Form 8843 can be found here: http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f8843.pdf
