Tax verification update

As of 4/25/2017, the U.S. Department of Education notified schools that signed photocopies of 2015 federal tax returns are now acceptable documents for verification purposes.

This is due to the continued outage of the IRS data retrieval tool on the FAFSA website as well as difficulty in obtaining the federal tax return transcript from the IRS.

In addition, the verification of non-filing status letter from the IRS is no longer required for those who did not file a federal tax return.
