Tax Returns

  • What documents do I need to submit for parental tax returns?

    Confidential information, including personally identifiable information (PII), should not be transmitted via email without encryption. If you are sending sensitive information, we encourage you to either use the IDOC option, mail the documents, or provide the documents via encrypted application (i.e., Winzip) with password protection. The password to open any encrypted documents should be sent via separate email.

    Undocumented Students Residing in the U.S. 

    Signed copies of Parents' 2017 Federal Income Tax Return, including all schedules and W-2 forms. Please be sure that the student's name and Dartmouth ID (if applicable) appear at the top of each page submitted.  If no income tax return will be filed, this should be certified in writing by completing the 2019-2020 Non-Filing Statement.

    Canadian Residents

    Signed copies of all pages and schedules of Parents' 2017 T1 General Tax Forms. If you file a U.S. tax return in addition to a Canadian return, both must be submitted. Please be sure that the student's name and Dartmouth ID (if applicable) appear at the top of each page submitted. Submit information to the Financial Aid Office.

    International Residents

    Signed copies of all pages of your Parents' 2017 Income Tax Statement for your country of residence should be submitted to the Financial Aid Office. If your parents file separately, please send a copy of each parent's tax return. Tax returns must be in English. You may translate these documents. Please be sure the student's name appear at the top of each page. Submit the information to the Financial Aid Office via email, fax, or postal mail.

    If your parents do not file tax forms, then you may submit a statement from their employer verifying their 2017 calendar year income. This statement must be in English. You may translate it.
