TerpTax Partnership 

The Graduate School has once again partnered with TerpTax and the Robert H. Smith School of Business to provide a free, comprehensive tax preparation service for UMD graduate students. Appointments are now available!

TerpTax, housed in the Robert H. Smith School of Business since 2015, TerpTax is a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) chapter—a program created by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to provide FREE tax return preparation to the community. The Graduate School's partnership allows TerpTax to provide comprehensive tax preparation services to our campus, especially graduate students. International graduate students are also welcome to use Glacier Tax Prep to assist with preparing tax returns.
