    Wow, my information was to the contrary. That sucks being an Aussie myself. Sort of makes me reconsider my housing decisions...

    Yes, apparently, Australia has all sorts of income tax treaties with the US with the EXCEPTION of taxable scholarship/stipends.

    You are right. I just received this email from tax support at NW:

    Considering you are non-resident of USA for tax purposes all your USA income will be subject to USA tax withholding, since Australia does not have treaty with USA for student income. The scholarship income is subject to 14% federal and 4.95% state taxes.
    The assistantship income depends on the US federal tax bracket for wages depending on your annual gross income it could be between 10%--20% and additional state tax of 4.95%.

    Best Regards,
