What if I didn't file taxes?
If you were selected for Verification on your 2016/17 FAFSA or your 2017/18 FAFSA then you may have been asked to submit a Tax Return Transcript from your 2015 taxes (or your parent's/spouse's 2015 taxes). If you/your parent/spouse were not required to file 2015 taxes then you will need to provide additional documents to complete your verification.
