Form 1042S

Form 1042S is a statement of earnings for international students who have declared a tax treaty during the previous calendar year. It reports earnings which were exempt under the tax treaty.

International students whose earnings exceeded their country’s treaty limit will receive both a Form 1042S and a Form W-2 and should not file a tax return until they have received both forms.

1042S statements are sent out by University Payroll during the month of March, typically during the third week of the month.  1042S  forms will be sent to the local address that appears on the Student Link, through the “Address and Phone” option, under the Personal Tab.   You can change that address by changing your address on file with the University Registrar or by notifying Student Payroll.

Submit address changes to Student Payroll in writing or via e-mail to stupayro@bu.edu. Include your name, BUID, and new address.

Requesting a Duplicate 1042S

If you have not received your 1042S by the last week in March, mail or fax a Request for a Duplicate 1042S to the Student Payroll Office.

You may also request a duplicate 1042S by e-mail at stupayro@bu.edu.
Please be sure to include:

  • Your name
  • Your BUID number
  • The year you need the 1042S for
  • The address you would like it mailed to

It takes 24-48 hours for a new 1042S to be produced.
