C. Independent Student’s Income Information to be verified
1. Tax Return Filers — Important Note: If the student 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 you, the student, 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 you have not already
used the tool, go to FAFSA.gov, log in to your FAFSA record, select “Make FAFSA Corrections,” and navigate to the
Financial Information section of the form. From there, follow the instructions to determine if you are eligible to use the
IRS Data Retrieval Tool to transfer 2018 IRS income tax information into your 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 when, or how to use the IRS Data Retrieval
Tool see your financial aid administrator.
Check the box that applies:
I, the student has used the IRS Data Retrieval Tool in FAFSA on the Web to retrieve and 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 that was transferred in the verification process.
I, the student has not yet used the IRS Data Retrieval Tool in FAFSA on the web but will use the tool to retrieve and
transfer 2018 IRS income information into the student’s FAFSA once the student has filed a 2018 IRS tax return. See
instructions above for information on how to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool. SC4 cannot complete the verification
process until the IRS information has been transferred into the FAFSA.
I, the student is unable or chooses not to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool in FAFSA on the Web, and the student
will submit to the school a 2018 IRS signed tax return.
Check here if the student’s IRS SIGNED tax return is attached to this worksheet.
Check here if IRS tax return(s) will be submitted to your school later. Verification cannot be completed until the
IRS tax return(s) have been submitted to SC4.
2. Tax Return Nonfilers — Complete this section if you, the student (and, if married, your spouse), will not file and are 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 student was not employed and had no income earned from work in 2018.
The student was employed in 2018 and has listed below the names of all the student’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 student by employers. 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.
