Glacier Tax Database

Students and scholars receiving payment from Vanderbilt must request Glacier access.

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
