Verification Worksheets - V1A, V1B, V1C, V2, V3, V4, V5, V6 This link will bring you to a series of verification forms. Students who have been selected for the verification process will be notified about which specific forms that they need to complete (NOT all of the forms). The forms are coded by number and you will need to pay attention to which forms are required for you. Be sure you know which of these forms you need before printing!

Student/Parent 2015 Federal Tax Documentation

***** This is not an actual document to print and submit! *****

One way to verify tax information is by using the FAFSA IRS DRT (IRS Data Retrieval Tool) on the web at www.fafsa.gov. Unfortunately, this option is currently unavailable.

Another option is to submit a Tax Return Transcript. To obtain a 2015 IRS Tax Return Transcript, go to www.IRS.gov and click on the “Get Transcript of Your Tax Records” link (under the Tools section), click “Get Transcript Online” and follow the prompts to “Create an Account.” Once logged in, the system will want to know why you are requesting a transcript. Select “Higher Education/Student Aid,” then select “2015.” (PLEASE NOTE: You must use the exact information you used when filing your 2015 IRS income tax return. For example, if you enter “St” in the Street Address, but you used “Street” on your tax return, it could prevent the IRS from finding your record).. Another option for requesting a Tax Return Transcript is to call the IRS at 1-800-908-9946.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE CANNOT ACCEPT YOUR TAX RETURNS (i.e. IRS 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ) AS DOCUMENTATION. THE INFORMATION MUST COME FROM THE IRS, EITHER BY DIRECT TRANSFER TO THE FAFSA OR BY A TAX RETURNTRANSCRIPT!
