2015–2016 Household Resources Verification Worksheet
V6-Independent Student
Your 2015–2016 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) was selected for review in a process called
“Verification”. The Financial Aid Office at your college must compare information from your FAFSA with information
you provide on this worksheet and with any other required documents. If there are differences, your Financial Aid
Office may require additional documentation and your FAFSA information may need to be corrected. You will not
receive federal financial aid until all verification requirements are met and the necessary corrections made.
What You Should Do
1. If you (or your spouse, if you are married) are tax filers, obtain 2014 IRS Tax Return Transcripts and W-2
Forms for yourself, and/or your spouse. The Financial Aid Office cannot accept preparer’s copies of the
required tax documents. Obtain an IRS Tax Return Transcript online at
or by phone at 1-800-908-9946. Make sure you request an IRS Tax Return Transcript and NOT an IRS Tax
Account Transcript. Important Note: If you used the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to transfer your IRS income data
into your FAFSA, you may not have to submit the IRS Tax Return Transcript.
2. Complete all sections of this worksheet – you must sign the certification (Section F) on page 5 of the worksheet.
3. Submit the completed worksheet, tax return transcript(s) and any other required documents to the Financial Aid
