D. Parent’s Income Information to be verified — Note: If two parents were reported in Section B of this worksheet, the
instructions and certifications below refer and apply to both parents.
1. Tax Return Filers—Important Note: If the student’s parent(s) filed or will file an amended 2018 IRS tax return, the student must
contact the Financial Aid Office before completing this section.
Instructions: Complete this section if the student’s parent(s) filed, or will file, a 2018 income tax return with the IRS.
The best way to verify income is by using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool that is part of FAFSA on the Web. If the student’s
parent(s) has not already used the tool, the parent and the student should go to FAFSA.gov, log in to the student’s
FAFSA record, select “Make FAFSA Corrections,” and navigate to the Financial Information section of the form. From
there, follow the instructions to determine if the parent(s) is eligible to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to transfer 2018
IRS income tax information into the student’s FAFSA. It takes up to two weeks for IRS income information to be
available for the IRS Data Retrieval Tool for electronic IRS tax return filers, and up to eight weeks for paper IRS tax
return filers. If you need more information about whether or how to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool see the student’s
financial aid office.
Check the box that applies:
The student’s parent has used the IRS Data Retrieval Tool in FAFSA on the Web to transfer 2018 IRS income
information into the student’s FAFSA, either on the initial FAFSA or when making a correction to the FAFSA. SC4 will
use the IRS information transferred into the student’s FAFSA to complete the verification process.
The student’s parent has not yet used the IRS Data Retrieval Tool but will use the tool to transfer 2018 IRS income
information into the student’s FAFSA once the parent’s IRS tax return has been filed. See instructions above for
information on how to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool. The student’s financial aid office cannot complete verification
until the parent has transferred IRS information into the student’s FAFSA.
The parent is unable or chooses not to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, and the parent will submit to SC4 a copy
of the parent’s 2018 signed IRS tax return(s).
Check here if an IRS tax return(s) is attached to this worksheet.
2. Tax Return Nonfilers—Complete this section if the student’s parent(s) will not file and is not required to file a 2018 income tax
return with the IRS. A proof of non-filing letter from the IRS dated after October 1, 2019 must be provided that indicates a
2018 income tax return was not filed with the IRS or other relevant tax authority. To obtain this letter visit www.irs.gov, call
1-800-908-9946, or complete IRS form 4506-T.
Check the box that applies:
The parent(s) was not employed and had no income earned from work in 2018.
The parent(s) was employed in 2018 and has listed below the names of all the parent’s employers, the amount
earned from each employer in 2018, and whether an IRS W-2 form is attached. Attach copies of all 2018 IRS W-2
forms issued to the parent(s) by employer(s). List every employer even if they did not issue an IRS W-2 form. If more
space is needed, attach a separate page with the student’s name and Social Security Number at the top.
