GLACIER Tax Prep (GTP) is web-based tax preparation software designed to help prepare a U.S. federal Nonresident Alien Income Tax Return (Form 1040NR or 1040NR-EZ) and Form 8843. UW-Madison employees can obtain a Tax Summary Report through your Glacier Payroll Account. This report will provide your tax residency status to help you determine what status to file your taxes under. More information on filing taxes in the U.S. can be found here on the University of Wisconsin Service Center’s website.

Individuals who had a Glacier account provided by the University of Wisconsin during 2021 may access GTP directly through their existing Glacier account if they wish to obtain free access to the GTP software.
Free access to GTP will be made available to individuals affiliated with the University of Wisconsin after March 1, 2023. They will be notified at that time by email.
Late February is also when the University expects to release the 1042-S forms to individuals who received a scholarship/fellowship stipend, tax treaty benefit, or other payments under income codes 12, 15, 16, 18, 19 or 50.
Once notified of GTP availability, individuals will be able to log into GTP through their regular Glacier account using the following steps:
- Login at: https://www.online-tax.net/;
- Select the GTP module from the Glacier menu screen;
- Individuals will also be able to print Form 1042-S through Glacier if they received income code 12, 15, 16, 18, 19 or 50 income during 2016 and they indicated in Glacier that they wish to receive their 1042-S electronically.
Anyone else being issued Form 1042-S will receive it via U.S. mail.
Individuals who do not remember the login or password for their regular Glacier account should select LOGIN, then FORGOT LOGIN. Once they enter the email address associated with their Glacier account and submit their request, they will receive an email containing Glacier access information.
Returns prepared through GTP are not electronically submitted to the IRS. Each individual must print, sign and mail their federal tax return to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) by the April 18, 2022 tax filing deadline.
Federal tax returns (Forms 1040NR or 1040NR-EZ), Form 8843, and state tax returns should not be submitted to the University of Wisconsin.
Individuals with questions while preparing their tax return through GTP should contact the GTP support team. Help links are available on all pages within the GTP website. Individuals who do not wish to use GTP to prepare their federal income tax return may obtain tax forms and more information directly from the Internal Revenue Service website.
