Foreigners working under the J-1 visa program typically have taxes withheld by the IRS, but do not earn enough to owe any taxes at the end of the year. However many of these workers are entitled to receive anywhere from $200 up to $500 dollars per year in tax refunds yet they often fail to claim their refunds, either because they do not understand sufficiently US tax law and therefore are overwhelmed by its complexity and never bother to pursue the matter. Another understandable reason is because they have already returned to their home countries, making collection of the refund even more difficult.

For a flat rate of $100, 1040NR Tax Returns will take care of the preparation and submission process of the return and provide an advance of the refund to the client in a way that is easy to spend in either the US or overseas.

The 1040NR Tax Returns website provides, in Spanish for its target clientele, a straightforward explanation of how the US tax system works, with reference to IRS forms 1040, 1040NR, and 1040NR-EZ, those most commonly used by wage earners. Refunds for the majority of J-1 visa workers is between $600 and $800, the site points out, making the $100 that 1040NR Tax Returns charges for form completion, filing and refund payment a bargain.
“This is a service that has been needed for a long time,” said co-founder Edward Parsons. “Too many of these workers have not received all that they are due, or have received no refund at all, because they lack understanding of the tax system or they have left the country. We hope to change that.”
