GLACIER Password Request and Document Submission Procedures
GLACIER is a nonresident alen tax ompliance system designed to allow institutions to efficiently and effectively collect information, make tax residency and treaty determinations, manage paperwork, maintain data, and file reports with the IRS. Texas A&M AgriLife uses GLACIER to ensure tax compliance on payments made to our foreign national employees/

  • Employee’s First, Middle, and Last Name

Completing GLACIER Record
Employee receives email notification of password and the login instructions for GLACIER. Employee enters personal data and answers questions regarding important immigration information.

Documents Required to Submit

  • Tax Summary Report

    • Note for completing W-4:
      • If the employee is a Nonresident Alien for Tax Purposes, employee is generally required to have Form W-4 as “Single” (regardless of the actual marital status) and “One” Personal Withholding Allowance (regardless of the actual number of dependents unless employee is a resident of Canada, Mexico, South Korea, or a student from India).
      • If the employee is a Resident Alien for Tax Purposes based on the personal data entered in the GLACIER, GLACIER will provide a blank Form W-4, employee could complete W-4 as a U.S. citizen.
