GLACIER is the University’s new secure online tax compliance system designed to allow Nonresident Aliens (NRA) to provide UMass Amherst with their immigrant and tax data efficiently and effectively.GLACIER helps determine tax residency, withholding rates, and income tax treaty eligibility. GLACIER also manages NRA’s paperwork, maintains NRA’s data and prepares tax forms and required statements.
NRA’s will receive an e-mail from firstname.lastname@example.org asking that you login to the website to complete the necessary forms via the internet. This will assist UMass Amherst in determining how we will tax you for payroll, scholarships and fellowships.
