Parents Seeking Financial Aid for College Tuition:
In order to complete the processing of your federal financial aid, you are required to submit an IRS Tax Transcript. Due to the U.S. Government Shutdown, the IRS is not currently issuing tax transcripts. As a solution, the U.S. Department of Education has issued an exceptionto the current policy on tax transcripts.
Students and parents can submit a completed and signed copy of their paper tax return in place of the requested IRS Tax Transcript.
Upon processing of this document, your federal financial aid will be packaged and awarded. It will then be appliedto your student account, but not disbursed until the tax return transcript can be obtainedfrom the IRS.
IMPORTANT - IF YOU DON'T LIKE PAYING PENALTIES TO THE IRS SEE BELOW:
DO YOU OWN A BUSINESS? DID YOU PAY A SPECIFIC VENDOR FOR SERVICES OR RENT IN THE AMOUNT OF $600 OR MORE IN 2017? IF SO, YOU NEED TO PROVIDE THE VENDOR OR RENTAL COMPANY A 1099misc.
THE IRS WILL ISSUE STEEP PENALTIES FOR FAILING TO PROVIDE A 1099misc WHEN REQUIRED.
PENALTIES RANGE FROM $50 PER 1099misc TO $186,000 PER 1099misc form. THE PENALTIES INCREASE BASED ON THE DATE THE FORM IS FILED.
IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO FILE THESE FORMS WITH THE CORRECT TAXPAYER INFORMATION. PENALTIES APPLY WHEN THE CORRECT INFORMATION IS NOT PROVIDED TO THE IRS.
CHECK OUR IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS PAGE ON THIS WEBSITE AND PRINT FORM W-9 TO HAVE YOUR VENDORS FILL OUT AND RETURN TO YOU. YOU SHOULD HAVE A W-9 ON FILE FOR ALL VENDORS. (HINT- IT IS MUCH EASIER TO GET THIS FORM BEFORE YOU WRITE THE FIRST CHECK TO THEM, THAN A YEAR LATER WHEN THE FORMS ARE DUE)
DEADLINE TO FILE
1096/1099 FORMS IS 1/31/19.
