If your parent(s) are not planning to file a 2016 federal income tax return, they will need to complete the 2018-19 Parent Non-Tax Filer's Statement.  They will also need to provide a Verification of Non-Filing Letter from the IRS for the 2016 tax year. 

The Parent Non-Tax Filer's Statement is only available through IDOC, on the online Document Management Dashboard.  Your parents will also need to submit any W-2 or 1099 forms they have by uploading them to the IDOC website.

To obtain a 2016 Verification of Non-Filing letter, use either the IRS's Get Transcript Tool or submit a copy of Form 4506-T to the IRS with Box 7 checked.  You will generally receive a copy of your letter by mail in 5-10 business days.
