Taxes

Please be advised the METC staff/faculty and the University of Wisconsin do NOT provide tax advice. A few things to keep in mind are:

  • If you are paid by a training grant, the University will not deduct income taxes from your stipend. However, the stipend is taxable. Many students file quarterly estimated tax statements. To do so, the Federal Forms 1040-ES (Estimted Income Tax for Individuals) are needed. Federal tax information and federal forms/publications are available from the Internal Revenue Service. Form requests and income information for Wisconsin state income tax are available from the Wisconsin Department of Revenue. IRS Publications 520 Scholarships and Fellowships and IRS 505 Tax Withholding and Estimated Tax may be helpful.
  • Note: Trainees/Fellows for whom taxes are not withheld will not receive a W-2 form. Instead, the University will provide a letter to you in January indicating the amounts paid to you during the previous year. Trainees are exempt from social security taxes.
