What documents do I need to submit for parental tax returns?

Tax Returns

U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents

Copies of Parents' 2018 Federal Income Tax Return, including all schedules and W-2 forms. All tax forms must be submitted via IDOC. If no income tax return will be filed, this should be certified in writing by completing the 2019-2020 Non-Filing Statement.

Copies of Parents' 2018 Federal Income Tax Return, including all schedules and W-2 forms. Please be sure that the student's name and Dartmouth ID (if applicable) appear at the top of each page submitted. All tax forms must be submitted via IDOC.
