Now, determine what documentation you need to provide to complete your EOP application:


Did your parent(s) file 2012 Federal Income Taxes?

If Yes:

  • Send a copy of your parent(s)’ 2012 federal income taxes, more specifically:
    • Pages 1 and 2 as well as ALL required Schedules
  • Worksheet pages are not necessary
  • The signature section on page 2 must be signed by the person filing (most likely your parent) or we will not be able to review
  • If your parent(s) do not have a copy of their 2012 federal tax return, you can order a copy from the IRS here:
  • If you are NOT claimed as a dependent on your parent(s)’ tax return, you must still send the tax return along with a letter signed by you, the student, and the parent with whom you reside describing why you were not claimed.

If No:

  • Go to the official IRS website to retrieve your proof of non-filing letter:,,id=232168,00.html
  • Click “Order a Transcript” under the #3
  • Complete all information for your parents (Social Security Number, Date of Birth, etc).
  • When prompted to pick a “Type of Transcript,” select RETURN TRANSCRIPT and tax year 2012.
  • Within two (2) weeks, you will receive a letter from the IRS stating no tax return is on file for your parent's Social Security Number.
