Doing taxes as a Paid Grad Student

Updated: Apr 27

Do you hate tax season as much as I do?

Taxes are usually a headache for me because I have multiple income sources. But this year has been especially challenging due to all the changes in my life! I worked half the year as a full-time salaried employee, then moved to another state and started graduate school where I receive a full-tuition scholarship and stipend. Plus, I work as an online English tutor, which is an independent contractor position.

Yeah, it's a real pain in the rear end.

After spending an hour (or two) crying and stressed out about how to do this I spent a few hours doing internet research on graduate student taxes and wanted to share what I found with you!

A couple disclaimers:

  • I am not a tax expert, you should consult one if you have further questions.

  • As an American student, I conducted research that was relevant for me. Thus, this post is for graduate students who are citizens or residents of the United States.

  • I'm only talking about federal tax, you will also need to investigate your state and local taxes.

Until next time...
