Hi

I did my internship as an independent contractor for 3 months under my CPT. The employer did not deduct any taxes from my salary, as I was told that I was supposed to pay taxes on my own. The question I have is will my state and federal taxes be exempted because I am on CPT and on a F1 VISA as a full time student. The reason I ask this is because I was refunded my state/federal taxes which was withheld by employer when I was working on campus in my school.

If your annual income is less than 9600$ then u will get full refund for state and federal taxes but not city tax. For now, u pay the taxes for your cpt income. Next year when u file tax returns u will get back the amount that u r supposed to

You would had been refunded the entire withholdings the financial year when you first entered the USA. and the reason for this was you were below the minimum salary annually for which you start paying taxes.
