International students struggle to receive tax refunds

John Pearson, the Director of the Bechtel International Center, and Kelly Wright, the Director of Payroll, sent an email last Tuesday updating international students who have been impacted by an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) error involving tax returns. The errors, which have led to decreased tax refunds and temporarily frozen assets, originate within the IRS and not Stanford, and the error has also occurred at other institutions across the nation.
