Federal Tax Returns
Federal Tax Returns and W-2s allow us to verify the information you reported on your FAFSA. This is required before we are able to disburse your financial aid to your student account.
Deadline: April 19th
As soon as your parent(s) complete their federal tax return, submit copies to our office. We require the entire federal tax return, including W-2s, 1099s, all schedules (A, B, C, D, E, F, K-1, etc.), and statements. In addition, if you filed a tax return for your business, corporation, or partnership (1120, 1120S, 1065, etc.) we will also need a copy of that return. A quick rule of thumb: if you sent it to the IRS, we want a copy!
If you earned income and received a W-2 and/or 1099, submit those copies to our office. If you filed a Federal Tax Return, submit those copies to our office as soon as you file.
Not Filing a Tax Return?
If you do not have W-2 forms, or if you will not be filing a tax return, be sure to indicate this on the Student Online Supplement and on your FAFSA. If your parent(s) do not have W-2 forms, or if they will not be filing a tax return, please have them complete a Non Filing Statement - Parent.
Filing a Tax Return Extension?
If your parent(s) request an extension from the IRS, you must provide a copy of the extension request (Form 4868 Application for Automatic Extension) along with all current W-2 forms or K-1 statements by April 19th to secure your priority status. Failure to submit this form by April 19th could jeopardize aid eligibility.
We cannot provide you with a financial aid award until we have received and reviewed your parent(s) federal tax return. If your parent(s) will not have their federal tax return completed until after the start of the semester, you will have to make payment arrangements with the Student Business Services Office to complete Clearance.
