2020-2021 DEPENDENT STUDENT VERIFICATION for TAX FILERS WORKSHEET
Your 2020-2021 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) was selected for review in a process called verification. The law
says that before awarding Federal Student Aid, we may ask you to confirm the information you and your parents reported on your
FAFSA. To verify that you provided correct information, we will compare your FAFSA with the information on this worksheet and with
any other required documents. If there are differences, your FAFSA information may need to be corrected. You and at least one parent
must complete and sign this worksheet, attach any required documents, and submit the form and other required documents to the
Financial Aid Office. SCC may ask for additional information. If you have questions about verification, contact the Financial Aid Office
as soon as possible so that your financial aid will not be delayed.

B. Dependent 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 administrator before completing this section.
Instructions: Complete this section if 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 the student has not already used the tool,
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 student 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.
Check the box that applies:
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. The
student’s school will use the IRS information that was transferred in the verification process.
Check here if W2 Wage Statement is attached to this worksheet. (REQUIRED)
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 tax return transcript—not a photocopy of the income tax return. To obtain an IRS tax
return transcript, go to www.IRS.gov and click on the “Order a Return or Account Transcript” link, or call 1-800-908-9946.
Make sure to request the “IRS tax return transcript” and not the “IRS tax account transcript.” You may print a tax transcript
by accessing the IRS website or IRS.gov. Be sure to also include a request for a Wage and Income Transcript. You will
need your Social Security Number, date of birth, and the address on file with the IRS (normally this will be the address
used when the 2018 IRS tax return was filed). It takes up to two weeks for IRS income information to be available for
electronic IRS tax return filers, and up to eight weeks for paper IRS tax return filers.
