一個人在美國念公立大學 報稅問題?

現在隻身在美國念大學 但學費有州內外之分

又聽說不只是要美國公民身分 還要報稅才有申請成為州民的資格

問題是 我是美國公民 但無收入 學費都是父母親從台灣匯過來

該怎麼申請報稅?

 

Update:

RENREN所說的四點

1.報稅證明

2.駕駛執照

3.可投票資訊

4.水電瓦斯帳單

2.駕照我一年前來這邊就考過了

3.可投票資訊 年齡已超過20歲 可投票

4.一年前租的這間house 都有用我名字付的水電瓦斯帳單

接下來是1.報稅證明 這點我不知道我銀行存款利息能不能算?? 當初也是一年前就辦了銀行帳戶 也有超過一年了...

所以我這樣申請的到州內學費嗎??

    Filing a tax return has absolute nothing to do with your residency.

    With some variations, the general principal (for the entire U.S.) to determine a student's residency for tuition purpose is based on the 10 questions asked in a FAFSA application:

    https://studentaid.ed.gov/fafsa/filling-out/depend...

    If you answer "Yes" in any questions, you are an independent student. Otherwise, you are a dependent student. For independent students, their residencies are based on their own situation. For dependent students, their residencies are based on their parents or legal guardians.

    In your case, as you sound like a dependent student, at least one of your parents, NOT you, has to meet the residency requirement for in-state tuition. If none of your parents meet the requirement (such as non-citizen/resident), you will be classified as a out-of-state student for your entire higher education until you graduate.

    In answering your question, filing a tax return is merely an evidence to support the residency requirement. Since it is not necessary to file a tax return, many can still be classified as a in-state student without the return.

    你已經入學了嗎?為什麼不直接去問學校呢?

    每一州的規定可能有點不同,以我們這一州來說,要先看學生是independent 或是dependent.以24歲為分界點,24歲以下除非有特殊狀況,多半是dependent.如果是dependent,就看父母的條件了.

    題外話,以納稅人的身份而言,我倒希望學校把關嚴一點.這怎能說是學校的不是?不然納稅人繳稅繳心酸的嗎?去除學費的考量,所有優秀學生死命搶進UCLA 跟柏克萊,加州居民不反彈才怪.

    不要再聽說了, 去學校的registrar問, 要不足什麼才能申請in-state一下就知道.

    大學?感覺不太可能申請到居民學費

    直接看我的這篇吧

    只有小孩是美國公民的學生不一定能拿到in-state學費!.

    大致妳都符合,只剩年紀了~

    有報利息就算有報稅了

    Under the age of 24 ... 經濟資源是要算在父母頭上

    如果父母其一沒有在美國 (並且也要能報稅收),就很難申請成功

    如果妳超過 24 就比較好辦,反正妳可以去學校問問&申請看吧

    反正學校賤賤的,都會想把國外來學生的 benefit cut out

    去凹凹看,感覺有成功的機率,但很小。。。 :P

    你在哪一州, 每州規定不同. 每個學校系統可能也有不同解釋. 你的問題, 學校一定會有規定

    去找個工作吧. part time也好. 銀行的利息也算是收入.
