Verification and Tax Extensions 2017-2018
Beginning with the 2017-2018 FAFSA, prior-prior tax year information is required when completing the application (i.e. the 2017-2018 FAFSA uses tax information from 2015). In very limited situations, the IRS will grant an extension to the standard 6 month automatic extension for tax filers who submitted an IRS Form 4868 (Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return). If you were granted an additional extension by the IRS allowing you to file your 2015 federal income tax return after the October 17th, 2015 automatic extension deadline and you have yet to file a 2015 return, please contact our office and request to speak to a member of the Verification Unit.
