Generally, stipends are not reportable by the University for U.S. citizens and RA, PR, H1B visaholders. However, if the recipient is a Nonresident Alien (F1 or J1 visaholder), the University might be required to report the scholarship (stipend) on Form 1042-S, as well as possibly withhold federal income taxes. In this case, contact the UH Foreign National Tax Specialist, Linda Morarticle at (713) 743-8987, for a determination.
