1042-S Information for Foreign National Students/Employees

The 1042-S is a year-end federal tax document given to a non-resident alien who received wages exempted from federal and state tax withholding by a tax treaty or received a non-qualified non-taxable scholarship. The 1042-S has an income code, which describes the type of income being reported.  In certain cases, you may receive a W-2 in addition to a 1042-S; the two forms are usually mailed at the same time.  The 1042-S will be postmarked no later than March 15. 

If you know that you should have received a Form 1042-S but have not received it, please contact HR Compliance and Immigration Services at or 434-924-1377.
