Obtaining a Tax Return Transcript

If you are selected for the verification process, you may be required to submit an official Tax Return Transcript form the IRS.

Instructions

1. Complete the Dependent/Independent Online Verification Form task found on MyAid Dashboard. Your answers on the form will determine whom we need a transcript from.  

2. Go to IRS.gov and click on ‘Get Your Tax Record’.

3. Choose which method to receive your transcript. Transcripts requested through the mail take 5-10 days. Transcripts requested online are immediately available for download. Most students who are requesting a transcript for the first time will not be able to use the online option.

What if I Can't Get a Transcript?

If your request for a transcript is unsuccessful (for reasons other than name, SSN, DOB, and address not matching the IRS records), or you believe you are a victim of tax related identity theft, please make an appointment with an Enrollment Services Counselor by calling 801-422-7075.
