Resident Alien for Tax Purposes

You are a Resident Alien for Tax Purposes so you will receive a W-2. We do not do tax filings on behalf of employees but there are a number of free or low cost tax assistance preparation sites throughout Nashville and in the Vanderbilt University Medical Center area.

The Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, an IRS program designed to help low- and moderate-income taxpayers complete their annual tax forms, has many locations throughout Nashville. See If you have a household income of less than $60,000, you qualify to get your taxes done for free at a VITA site. Trained VITA volunteers will prepare your taxes and e-file them but please note, VITA staff may or may not be experts on international tax issues.

In addition, if your adjusted gross income is less than $60,000.00 you can use the IRS free tax software. It's called Free File and is available on the IRS website at
