Dependent students need to provide personal and parent income information.
Independent students need to provide personal and spousal (if applicable) information.
Income information may be reported to the Financial Aid Office using one of the following methods:
- Import tax information directly to your FAFSA with the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.
- Submit a 2016 Tax Return Transcript (available from the IRS).
- Submit a signed copy of 2016 federal income tax returns.
The easiest way to obtain the required IRS tax information is for you to update your FAFSA using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT).
Please note: the DRT cannot be used if the tax return filer is married and filed their tax return as either head of household or married filing separately.
If you still have questions about the verification process, please refer to our Verification FAQ's.
