This year was the second time I used Sprintax. I am kind of new to tax filing, but Springtax made things easy for me. I was able to do everything by using instructional videos, emails from my college, and the FAQ. I strongly recommend international students use Springtax.

A fluid experience. I am relatively new to the tax filing system in the USA, however, I was able to file my taxes with a few instructional videos, articles provided from my school, and the FAQ section. Would strongly recommend fellow international students to use to file their taxes.
