Welcome to Harvard NRA Tax Compliance, where you can find information on the nonresident alien tax regulations of the United States as it relates to payments from Harvard University. 

Our primary objective is to help meet Harvard's tax compliance obligations. However, we are also here to assist any foreign national in receipt of payments from Harvard University, and anyone facilitating these payments, including employees, students, researchers, and independent contractors.

We provide four main services:

  1. Classifying for U.S. tax purposes to determine appropriate U.S. tax withholding rates,
  2. Offering tax exemption through tax treaty benefits
  3. Supplying tax reporting documents for use in filing U.S. tax returns
  4. When actual tax advice is sought, directing customers to suitable tax resources

We look forward to assisting our customers from around the world, in a variety of situations. And we hope this website will provide insight into Harvard's tax compliance obligations, while helping our customers navigate the broader tax compliance landscape.
