Glacier Tax Database

Students and scholars receiving payment from Vanderbilt must create a profile in the Glacier tax database. Please ask your supervisor to request Glacier access for you through the International Tax Office (ITO).

Glacier is a software solution for nonresident alien (NRA) compliance and income tax treaty analysis.  It examines complex bodies of U.S. tax law and procedures, and provides up-to-date analyses for withholding tax rates, and tax and treaty exemptions.   It determines U.S. tax residency status, resident or nonresident, using an individual’s immigration status history and days of U.S. presence.  Data can be collected and forms delivered, all online.   ~ Adapted from

If you have problems or questions with the Glacier program please contact ITO, their contact information is provided above.
