Terp Tax

Beginning in 2019, The Graduate School partnered with TerpTax and the Robert H. Smith School of Business to provide a free, comprehensive tax preparation service for UMD graduate students. TerpTax, which is housed in the Robert H. Smith School of Business, is a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) chapter, a program created by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to provide FREE tax return preparation to low-to-mid-income individuals and families, the elderly, students, and persons with disabilities. TerpTax has been providing services on campus since 2015. The Graduate School's partnership with TerpTax 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.
