Independent Student’s Income Information to Be Verified
TAX RETURN FILERS—Important Note: If you (or your spouse, if married) filed, or will file, an amended 2018 IRS
tax return, you must contact your financial aid administrator 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 (IRS DRT) that is part of FAFSA on the Web at FAFSA.ed.gov. In
most cases, no further documentation is needed to verify 2018 IRS income tax return information that was transferred into
the student’s FAFSA using the IRS DRT if that information was not changed.
Check the box that applies:
I, the student, have used the IRS Data Retrieval Tool in FAFSA on the Web to transfer my (and, if married, my spouse’s)
2018 IRS income information into my FAFSA.
I, the student, have not yet used the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, but I will use the tool to transfer my (and, if married, my
spouse’s) 2018 IRS income information into my FAFSA once I have filed my 2018 IRS tax return.
I, the student, am unable or choose not to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool in FAFSA on the Web, and I will submit to
the school 2018 IRS tax return transcript(s)
To obtain a 2018 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 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 your 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
If you are married and you and your spouse filed separate 2018 IRS tax returns, you must submit tax return
transcripts for both you and your spouse.
Check here if a 2018 IRS tax return transcript(s) is attached to this worksheet.
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.
Check the box that applies:
The student (and, if married, the student’s spouse) was not employed and had no income earned from work in 2018.
The student (and/or the student’s spouse if married) was employed in 2018 and has listed below the names of
the amount earned from each employer in 2018, and whether an IRS W-2 form is attached. Attach copies of
all 2018 W-2 forms issued to you (and, if married, to your spouse) by employers. List every employer even if the
employer did not issue an IRS W-2 form. If more space is needed, attach a separate page with your name and SSN at
2018 Amount Earned IRS W-2 Attached?
