Under the US-Pakistan income tax treaty, you are allowed to earn up to $5000 per year as a student. Therefore if you earned less than $5,000, you are not required to file a tax return.

However, if you did pay tuition (i.e., you did not have full scholarship offset for tuition) then you are still eligible for the American Opportunity Tax Credit.

If you have a US Social Security Number you can file a tax return.

So if you file a tax return, you will show no income, and you will enter the information for the education tax credit. This will force Form 8863 to print, and you will receive a $1000 tax credit.

I hope this answers your question. IF you have any more please feel free to ask and I Will be happy to answer.

Thanks!

Roger

How to do file a tax return? Who do i mail it to?
Tax Professional: taxmanrog, Certified Public Accountant (CPA) replied 1 month ago

You can file it electronically if you have TurboTax.

Otherwise the address you mail it to depends on where you are living.
