ISSS is here to help UAB international students, faculty, and staff navigate the bewildering array of US state and federal tax laws.

If you are an international student who has received a scholarship or an international faculty or staff member, please email Aston Manotai, our Non-Resident Alien Tax Analyst, at to schedule an appointment to review your tax obligations in the United States. ISSS will evaluate all appointment papers and requisitions to ensure that a tax status determination has been made and entered into UAB’s payroll system. ISSS must sign and forward the documents to the Payroll Department and verify your employment authorization and tax status before you can begin receiving payment. No payments can be made by Payroll or Student Accounting until ISSS approves them.
