Some students have not received the full refund that was stated on their federal tax return. According to the Glacier Nonresident Alien Compliance System employee S. Mercer this is the latest news on where the IRS is in the refunding process:
Many foreign nationals have only received partial federal tax refunds to date. Typically when the IRS refunds an amount different from the amount shown on the federal income tax return a letter is sent within a couple of weeks explaining the difference. Until recently, the IRS has been silent on what caused the difference in the amount refunded vs the amount shown as a refund on the federal income tax return. As a result, many foreign nationals have written the IRS requesting a reconciliation of the amount refunded vs amount shown on the tax return. The IRS recently announced that it is verifying all 2014 Forms 1042-S and that the verification process began June 15, 2015. The IRS has stated that it could take up to six months from this date to complete the verification process. Once completed, the IRS will release tax refunds.

The 2015 Fall Semester taxable tuition waivers will be processed on employees' pay checks on August 31. Employees with taxable tuition waivers would have received an email on August 21, 2015 notifying them that the taxable waivers will be added to their taxable gross income.
The Taxable Graduate Waiver on the employee's pay statement will be denoted in the Earnings Section by the earning code 'Tuition' (TUI).
The taxable tuition waiver amount will be subject to social security tax, and federal and state income tax withholding. Employees will see a decrease in their take home pay due to the taxable tuition waiver.
