Visiting the US on a J1 visa is exciting - especially because if you’ve worked in the US and paid tax, you could be entitled to a US tax refund. We get US tax back for thousands of J1 Work & Travel participants every year.

As US tax laws can be confusing, many people think, “Why bother filing a tax return?.” Well, everyone who visited the US on a J1 visa is required by law to file a tax return and it’s important to comply with US tax laws.

Last year, the average J1 tax refund for Sprintax users was $175. The amount you get back, however, depends on your individual circumstances and on factors such as how much you’ve earned and how long you have been working.
