2019–2020 Standard Verification Worksheet
V1-Dependent Student
Your 2019–2020 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) was selected for review in a process called
“Verification”. The Financial Aid Office at your college must compare information from your FAFSA with information
you provide on this worksheet and with any other required documents. If there are differences, your Financial Aid
Office may require additional documentation and your FAFSA information may need to be corrected. You will not
receive federal financial aid until all verification requirements are met and the necessary corrections made.
What You Should Do
1. If you or your parent(s) are tax filers, obtain a 2017 IRS Tax Return Transcript for yourself and your
parent(s). Request an IRS Tax Return Transcript online at www.irs.gov/Individuals/Get-Transcript
or by phone at
1-800-908-9946. Make sure you select an IRS Tax Return Transcript and NOT the IRS Tax Account Transcript. Be
sure to specify tax year 2017 when making your request. In place of the transcript, the Financial Aid Office can
accept a complete signed copy of a preparer’s 2017 Federal Income Tax Return (Form 1040, 1040A or
1040EZ) that was submitted to the IRS. Important Note: If you used the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to transfer
your 2017 income data into your FAFSA, you may not have to submit the IRS Tax Return Transcript.
2. If your parents had income earned from work in 2017, but did not and were not required to file a tax return, they
must provide a 2017 Verification of Non-Filing Letter dated on or after October 1, 2018. They may request a
Verification of Non-Filing Letter at www.irs.gov/Individuals/Get-Transcript
or by phone at 1-800-908-9946. Both
you and your parents must provide copies of W-2 forms issued by your employers for all income earned from
work in tax year 2017 that was not reported on a tax return.
3. Complete Sections A-D of this worksheet you and one of your parents must sign the Section E certification on
page 3 of the worksheet.
4. Submit the completed worksheet, tax return transcript(s) and any other required documents to the Financial Aid
Office at your college.
