I am a Harvard affiliate, using my HBS email address to access and upload GLACIER documentation and forms securely via the Harvard link provided, but I keep receiving an error message indicating I do not have permission. What should I do?

Secure sharing from University SharePoint or MS Teams requires an HBS affiliate to also be licensed properly and sign in with their University credentials.

Here are the steps you should take as an HBS affiliate, with an associated HBS email, to access and successfully submit your GLACIER information securely:

Tax Filing

If you received U.S.-source income, you are required to file an annual tax return (such as 1040NR,1040NR-EZ, 1040, 1040EZ, etc.) with:

  • the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) 
  • the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (in some cases)

As a resident alien, you are responsible for independently reporting your income to the U.S. tax authorities by referring to your personal pay records.

Alternatively, if your scholarship was less than your tuition and related expenses, it would have been reported on the 1098-T, not the 1042-S. Please contact the...

Who should contact the Nonresident Alien Tax office?

All foreign nationals expecting to receive income from the University, including fellowships, stipends, compensation, and other payments for service, who have not received the link to the GLACIER online tax classification program and/or have tax-related questions. Please note that if the only “payments” from the University received by an undergraduate or graduate student are scholarship amounts applied directly to the student’s term bill, the student will not have tax withheld or be issued a tax reporting document, so does not have to contact this office.
