Have we requested tax transcripts from you / your parents?
We can no longer accept federal tax return forms 1040EZ, 1040A and/or 1040. If we require documentation of your and/or your parents’ 2014 income, you will be required to provide an official IRS Tax Return Transcript. These forms can be requested online at www.irs.gov and you will be able to print a copy or have it mailed directly to you within 5-10 days of the request. Tax Transcript Instructions
However, the simplest and fastest manner to fulfill the tax transcript requirement is to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool available when filing or correcting your FAFSA. This tool allows data to be pulled directly from the IRS to populate the appropriate fields on your FAFSA. If at the time of filing your FAFSA, you or your parents have not yet filed federal taxes, you can go back in to your FAFSA at a later date to update with IRS data. DRT Instructions
Please Note: The University of New Hampshire Financial Aid Office is committed to being a paperless office. All documentation sent to the Financial Aid Office is scanned. During peak periods, it can take a week for the information to show as received. Please allow time for information to arrive in our office and a week for scanning when checking your application status. The information that you can see online is the same information viewable to the Financial Aid Office staff.
If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Financial Aid Office.
