Parent Non-Tax Filer's Statement & IRS Verification of Non-Filing
If your parent(s) are not planning to file a 2018 federal income tax return, they will need to complete the 2020-2021 Parent Non-Tax Filer's Statement. They will also need to provide a Verification of Non-Filing Letter from the IRS for the 2018 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 2018 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.
