• Student 2012 Tax Information

    Important Note: The instructions below apply to the student and spouse, if the student is married. Notify the financial aid office if the student or spouse filed separate IRS income tax returns for 2012 or had a change in marital status after the end of the 2012 tax year on December 31, 2012. If the student and spouse filed separate 2012 IRS income tax returns, 2012 IRS Tax Return Transcripts must be provided for both.

    Instructions: The best way to verify income is by using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT) that is part of FAFSA on the Web at FAFSA.gov. In most cases, no further documentation is needed to verify 2012 IRS income tax return information that was transferred into the student’s FAFSA using the IRS DRT if that information was not changed.

    In most cases, for electronic filers, 2012 IRS income tax return information for the IRS DRT is available within 2–3 weeks after the 2012 electronic IRS income tax return has been accepted by the IRS. Generally, for filers of 2012 paper IRS income tax returns, the 2012 IRS income tax return information is available for the IRS DRT within 8–11 weeks after the 2012 paper IRS income tax return has been received by the IRS. Contact the financial aid office if more information is needed about using the IRS DRT.

    To obtain a 2012 IRS Tax Return Transcript, go to www.IRS.gov and click on the “Order a Return or Account Transcript” link, or call 1-800-908-9946. Make sure to request the “IRS Tax Return Transcript” and not the “IRS Tax Account Transcript.” Use the Social Security Number and date of birth of the first person listed on the 2012 IRS income tax return, and the address on file with the IRS (normally this will be the address used on the 2012 IRS income tax return). In most cases, for electronic filers, a 2012 IRS Tax Return Transcript may be requested from the IRS within 2–3 weeks after the 2012 IRS income tax return has been accepted by the IRS. Generally, for filers of 2012 paper IRS income tax returns, the 2012 IRS Tax Return Transcript may be requested within 8–11 weeks after the 2012 paper IRS income tax return has been received by the IRS.

    Non-Tax Filer – Complete this document if you have any Untaxed Income to report or if you WILL NOT file 2012 taxes.
