Sprintax Tax Preparation Software

OISS is covering the cost for your federal income tax return ($51.95) if you file using Sprintax. You must access Sprintax via the links on our website (see below) to benefit from this discount. There are a limited number of Sprintax codes offered by Yale for each tax year. Please file as early as possible. Although we usually have enough codes for all of our students and scholars, please note that we cannot guarantee a Sprintax discount code, especially after the April tax deadline.

Sprintax can do your state taxes as well for an additional fee. Please see step 6 below for more information.

Important Note:
