Tax return deadline almost here, did you file yet?

This is a reminder to all United States residents from Free Nepal Inc. and Mysansar that the 2008 tax return filing deadline is April 15, 2009.

Have you filed your tax returns yet?

Usually EVERY US resident is required to file tax return even if you made no income (check with IRS – to verify if you are required to file. Filing tax return is very important to maintain your legal status in the United States.

If you have not already filed; you have only 10 days to do so, or you may have to pay a hefty fine.

Free Nepal is still offering free CINTAX access codes to non-resident Nepali students, scholars and professionals. But hurry! We only have a limited number of codes left. Please email us at [email protected] from your university or professional account with your full name and mailing address to receive the code.

If you are illegible to use CINTAX because you are considered “resident for tax purposes” you will need to file your tax retun like a US citizen. You may have to visit a tax professional.

Free Nepal has gathered volunteer tax professionals to help you file your taxes. Federal and New York state tax filing is available to members* for free; for all other states you will need to donate at least $15 to Free Nepal. Non-members* may use this service by donating $35 for federal return, $15 for New York state return and $25 for any other states.
