If applicants and their families have not completed their 2017 tax returns, you can submit complete 2016 tax returns (via IDOC) by February 15 to be considered for a grant. Complete 2017 tax returns must be submitted (again via IDOC) by the end of April to confirm a grant. We review tax returns to confirm and make any necessary adjustments to financial aid awards. Therefore, please keep in mind that the late submission of 2017 tax forms will result in late notification of any alterations to your award.
All tax forms must be signed and dated, and all schedules, attachments, and W-2 forms must be submitted. If an applicant/spouse/parent(s) owns a business, complete business returns must also be included, as well as any partnership and/or “S” Corporation returns.
