Information about Claiming Taxback

Help offered filing your J1 tax back form

It’s been a while since we have posted here, in fact it’s been a few years since we’ve used the J1 Taxback over the counter clindamycin service ourselves. Previously we used to help people fill out the forms, but over the last 2 years the number of requests for this has dropped. So either the service is getting easier to do (which is what we hope), or we are not showing ourselves as approachable as possible.

If you need help filling our your J1 Taxback please don’t hesitate to contact us pilex cijena . Remember you can claim you Social Security and Medicare for up to 5 years. If you are a J-1 researcher, and on a longer stay than a typical college student who goes to the US for 4 months, you can claim exemption for up to 18 months.

Calling home from the States

On of the many worries that students have when going on a J1 Visa is how do they save money and make sure that they bring some money back to Ireland at the end of the Summer. There are many costs involved with living abroad, like accomodation, food, transport, and your phone bill. One of the more expensive things is calling home while you are away. Either you have to rent a phone line, and go through the hassle of getting organised (and cancelled when you leave) or you go for a prepaid mobile (cell) phone.

Recently we came across a product, that will solve this problem. It will save you money on calls, and roaming charges are significantly reduce.  The only stipulation is that you have to make sure that your phone can handle a 3rd party SIM card. One quick way to check if your phone is SIMunlocked, is to put in a friends SIM card into your phone. So if you are 02, try a Vodafone SIM card, or viceversa.

So you’ve just been working in the US for the Summer, and now you’ve returned home and are wondering just exactly “What taxes can be claimed back with a J1 ?“.

In the US, there are 3 types of income tax, and on your wages slip you should can see up to 4 of the following deductions:

  1. FICA (Social Security Tax, figured at 6.2% of the first $97,500 of wages)
  2. Medicare (health insurance, can be separate depending on your provider, and is 1.45% of all wages)
  3. cialis tablet dosage

  4. State tax (taxes that go to the state you live in, some states don’t have this. Rates can vary)
  5. Local tax (taxes that go to the local authorities, like your city that you live in. Rates can vary.)
  6. Federal tax (taxes that go to the federal government, rates depend on your salary.

J1 visa holders are exempt from FICA (Social Security or Medicare) taxes for two years . This more than covers the length that a typical J1 student will stay in the USA.
