IRS Form 8843 Must be Mailed by June 15

The 8843 is a federal tax form required by most students and scholars--and their dependents--in F or J status. If you were in the United States for any part of 2017 in F or J student status -- even one day -- and are considered a “nonresident aliens” (NRA) for federal tax purposes, you and all your F2/J2 dependents must mail federal tax form 8843 to the IRS, even if you had no US income in 2017.
