Financial Aid Verification Help
Hello, my school recently requested a copy of my parents' Federal Tax Return. We only have the original 1040 tax return, that my parents filed jointly. Would it be ok if I made photocopies of the tax return to mail to the Financial Aid Office, so that my parents may keep the original one? Should I include a 1099 for "miscellaneous income" along with the return and my parents' W-2 and 1099-R forms? All documents are due July 23rd and I want to send them as soon as possible. I'm sorry for the long post. Thank you and any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.13 replies
