I've been having some problems getting my noncustodial parent's tax documents to colleges especially for IDOC (haven't sent it yet).
My noncustodial parent has been incarcerated for the past year and is currently retired to draw on a retirement pension while in prison. I have her 1099R in place of a W2, but the actual federal tax returns are delayed.
I had to send her the actual tax documents and booklets (prison didn't have them available). She filled them out to the best of her ability, but I'm sure she made mistakes without any help (we were able to complete the CSS/Profile). Now we are waiting for them to be filed.
The deadlines are drawing near and I'm wondering if I should just send copies of the 1099R. I have sent letters explaining my circumstances to most of the colleges, but I'm still get letters asking for her tax documents. If it matters, I do have an EFC of 0.
Any help with sending in the IDOC without her tax return and any suggestions with reasoning with the other financial aid offices would be helpful.
