This session will provide general information on filing a Canadian income tax return by international students. Topics discussed in this session will include: who is required to file an income tax return; how and when to complete the tax returns; the difference between your Social Security Number and your Individual Tax Number; which records and forms must be kept when filing your income tax return. While this information session will not involve completing income tax forms on the spot, we will provide you with scenarios of typical tax situations of an international student, which can be used as a guide to complete your tax return.
