If you received income while in the U.S., you may need to file an income tax return. In most cases you will qualify as a Non-Resident Alien (NRA) and will file either a 1040NR or a 1040NR-EZ. You can download these forms from:

http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040nr.pdf or http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040nre.pdf

If you have not received income, you may file a Form 8843, available at:

http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f8843.pdf

If you have worked in the U.S. and your income was subject to withholding, you may need to file Form 1042-S:
