International Employment and Taxation (IET) assists campus to successfully employ and retain foreign national employees needing employment sponsorship on a temporary or permanent basis, as well as ensuring compliance with payment and taxation rules and procedures. IET stays current with relevant U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), Department of Homeland Security, Department of State, Department of Labor, Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and NC Department of Revenue (NC DOR) regulations and policies, and compliance.

Tax Assessment

All Foreign Nationals who are going to be employed on campus or who will be receiving a fellowship, scholarship, and certain payments processed through the University Controllerís office are required to have a tax assessment.

A tax assessment is a review of your tax liability in the United States based on treaties that the US has with other nations. In many cases you may be exempt from paying some, if not all, US taxes, however, you will not be eligible for these exemptions until you have your tax assessment. You should request a tax assessment as soon as you know that you are (1) going to be employed on campus or (2) receiving a fellowship/scholarship, or (3) receiving payments from the University Controllerís office.
