Verification Documentation Changes

April 25, 2017

The Department of Education has provided new options for acceptable documentation for verification. These changes include options to submit a signed 2015 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ if the taxpayer is unable to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool or submit tax return transcripts. Additionally, tax non-filers are no longer required to submit a letter of non-filing from the IRS and instead must only provide copies of W-2’s if they had earned income in 2015. For more information about what documents to submit, please see our verification guide.
