Parent Federal Tax Return or IRS Transcript indicating non-filer & W2s

All persons who supplied information on the FAFSA must submit documentation of their
income for calendar year 2001.  Tax filers must submit signed copies of their 1040, 1040A,   1040EZ or Telefile forms and W2s. If you do not have a copy of your return, contact your tax   preparer or call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040 to request a “Tax Return Transcript”.    Signatures are required on all tax returns, including Telefile, 1040PC and transcripts.  IRS Form 8453 does not satisfy this requirements.     

Parents that did not file a tax return for 2001 must provide us with a Tax Return
Transcript, which will confirm non-filing status.  Call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040 to request a  “Tax Return Transcript”.  Signatures are required on transcripts.

W2s may be requested from your tax preparer, past employer, or you may request them
from the IRS.  To request W2s from the IRS you must complete a form 4506. This form
may be downloaded from the IRS web site at www.irs.gov
