Stimulus Tax Message for Scholars and International Employees

We are aware that some current and former employees/visitors received a 2020 Recovery Rebate in the amount of $1200 distributed by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as part of the “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act,” or the “CARES Act." Whether or not international visitors are eligible for this rebate is, unfortunately, outside of our office’s scope. We are not tax specialists and we cannot advise on tax filing. However, we do want to make you aware of some resources that may help clarify the situation for you.
