Please see TurboTaxDeeS's response at the following link, regarding filing requirements for students on F-1 visas in OPT:

https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/3130970-student-f1-opt-tax

Please note the following from the link above:

  • As a nonresident alien, you are only required to file a US tax return for income from US sources
  • If you are required to file a tax return, you will file a Form 1040NR
  • TurboTax does not support Form 1040NR 
  • Please see the following website:https://www.sprintax.com/ which is specifically designed to help international students file 1040NRs 

 The IRS only makes direct deposits for income tax refunds into U.S.-based bank accounts - please see the following information from the IRS, Helpful Tips for Effectively Receiving a Tax Refund for Taxpayers Living Abroad:
