2024-2025 Student marital status verification

If this item is listed under your Financing Tasks in My ASU, your financial aid disbursement will be placed on hold until you provide the information requested.

Why this is needed

This eForm is used for two different scenarios:

  1. The marital status reported on your FAFSA conflicts with the information reported on your family size eForm, your tax return or other documents submitted in support of your financial aid application.
  2. You are a dependent student and were married after you completed the 2023-2024 FAFSA.

Need to request tax documents from the IRS? Here's how:

You may use one of the following methods to request your 2022 Tax Return Transcript. Before choosing the first option, please read the IRS user requirements to see if it is a viable option.

  • You can instantly retrieve your TRT online at the IRS Get Transcript website by clicking the Get Transcript Online button. The online tool requires the user to register before submitting a request. The user must have the following:
    • Access to a valid email address.
    • A Social Security number.
    • Filing status and address from the last-filed tax return.
    • A text-enabled mobile phone in the user’s name (pay-as-you-go plans cannot be used).
    • A personal account number from one of the following: credit card, home mortgage loan, home equity line of credit or car loan.

If the tax filer has a credit security freeze with Equifax, you must request a temporary freeze lift until you successfully register or the IRS will not be able to verify your identity. You will need to contact Equifax to resume the freeze unless you scheduled it to resume automatically. For more information, visit IRS Get Transcript FAQs.

  • Request a 2022 TRT be mailed to you by visiting the IRS Get Transcript website and clicking the Get Transcript by Mail button. Once requested, it will take seven to ten business days to receive by mail.
  • You can call 1-800-908-9946 and use the IRS automated phone system to request your 2022 TRT be mailed to you. Once requested, it will take seven to ten business days to receive by mail.
  • Print the IRS Form 4506T-EZ from the IRS website. Complete lines one through four and enter your 10-digit ASU ID number on line five (i.e., customer file number). Enter the tax year 2022 on line six. Then, sign and submit to the IRS. After the IRS processes the IRS Form 4506T-EZ, the TRT will be mailed to you in seven to ten business days.
  • Request a replacement copy from the employer who issued the original.
  • You and your spouse can instantly retrieve a wage and income transcript online at the IRS Get Transcript website. The online tool requires the user to register before submitting a request. The user can only use this option if they have the following:
    • Access to a valid email address.
    • A Social Security number.
    • Filing status and address from the last-filed tax return.
    • A text-enabled mobile phone in the user’s name (pay-as-you-go plans cannot be used).
    • Personal account number from one of the following: credit card, home mortgage loan, home equity line of credit or car loan.
      • During the registration process, the IRS will send the user a confirmation code via email and an authentication code via text. The IRS email and text will contain a one-time code that the user will use to finalize your registration. After a login has been created, continue by entering your IRS username.
      • Select the reason the transcript is needed: Higher education or student aid.
      • Go to the wage and income transcript section and click the 2022 year to print your transcript. 
  • You and your spouse can request a 2022 wage and income transcript from the IRS by printing and completing the IRS Form 4506-T from the IRS website.

Please use the tips below to complete the 4506-T:

  • Enter your 10-digit ASU ID number on line 5 (customer file number).
  • Check box 8 (Form W-2).
  • On line 9, enter 12/31/2022.
  • Sign and submit it to the IRS.
  • After the IRS processes the IRS Form 4506-T, the wage and income transcript will be mailed to you in seven to ten days.
If you are unable to retrieve a W-2, a signed and dated statement including following will suffice:
  • Sources and amounts of earnings for 2022, to include name and contact of employer; and
  • Other income received for 2022, and
  • Resources (local/state/federal assistance) received for 2022.
The TRDBV will be requested to verify the 2022 federal tax information for victims of IRS-related identity theft who are selected for verification. You may no longer have your 2022 federal tax return and cannot obtain a 2022 Tax Return Transcript from the IRS.
  1. The victim of the IRS tax-related identity theft can call the Identity Protection Specialized Unit toll free number at 1-800-908-4490.
  2. After IPSU authenticates the tax filer's identity, you can request that the IRS mail you an alternate paper tax return transcript, known as the Transcript Database View.
  3. Once the TRDBV is received, submit a copy to ASU along with the required signed and dated letter.
