    1. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) requires that payments for services made to or on behalf of a person who is not a citizen of the United States, or has Resident Alien status must be reported annually as Nonresident Alien payments. The IRS also requires that taxes be withheld from payments that do not qualify for exemption under tax treaties or IRS code regulations. These requirements do not apply to payments where the source of the funds is outside the United States, or where the services are performed in another country.

    2. Foreign persons receiving payments for services who do not qualify for a Social Security Number must apply to the IRS for an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number. The International Student Advisor in the Center for Global Engagement can assist in the application process and in other questions related to inviting foreign visitors.
