GLACIER is an online program designed to collect tax-related information from foreign individuals via a secure internet site. GLACIER automatically determines the individual’s U.S. tax status, treaty eligibility and tax withholding rates based on information that the foreign national enters in the program.
- Department collects information on foreign national including email address & visa type and enters it into the Oracle vendor set-up system.
- Vendor/foreign individual receives an email from Glacier ([email protected]) with login information. NOTE: It may take several days before you are hired into the PeopleSoft System.
- Vendor/foreign individual logs into Glacier, completes questions and prints out all forms. Original signed forms with copies of any required visa documentation (e.g., I-94, VISA passport sticker, etc.) must be sent to the NRA Tax Administrators Office either by mail or via fax (617) 496-3196 within 5 days. Originally signed forms are required. Failure to complete Glacier or submit the forms may result in higher taxes being withheld and/or non-payment to the vendor/individual.
