TFX helps non-resident aliens file tax returns

We provide help to those who are not a US citizen or a Green card holder, but have US tax filing requirements.
Business Tax Return

At TFX, we know that a foreign national's tax responsibilities are complex. Right from the start the significant differences exist between how nonresident aliens and resident aliens (for tax purposes) are taxed.

A nonresident alien (for tax purposes) must pay taxes on any income earned in the U.S. to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) unless the person can claim a tax treaty benefit (this is very complex by itself - we specialize in this). This applies to students as well.

Failure to pay the correct tax can result in an unexpected tax obligation when the individual leaves the U.S. or may put a future application for residency in peril.

How TFX can help

US taxes are hard. They’re even harder for non-residents because the filing process will vary based upon nonresident status & which country you are a resident of. The team at TFX are experts in every single tax treaty and know how to ensure that you are not double-taxed and avail of any possible credits specific to your specific income type & country of origin.

Which non-resident aliens
have to file a U.S. tax return?

There are many scenarios when a non-resident alien may need to file a tax return. Perhaps you are in the US for a short amount of time on a work visa. Perhaps you have started a company that will conduct business in the US (for example, you set up an Amazon or Shopify store). In short, if you have U.S income, you likely have to file a U.S. tax return. Now, whether you will owe any tax or whether you will get a refund will depend on many variables. That’s why TFX is here, to ensure that you are within compliance and that you never pay a dime more than you have to.

Are Tax Treaty exemptions
available for nonresident aliens?

Yes, Tax Treaties are available for some foreign nationals. TFX has a team of experts who will examine your specific case vis-a-vis any applicable tax treaty. Tax treaties are immensely helpful and allow your income to be taxed at a reduced rate or even fully exempt from U.S. income.
