Why do you need my business tax returns?

Some applicants may be asked to submit tax information, including business taxes. In order to consider the financial strength of all applicants equally, it is important that we evaluate all income and assets belonging to a family, including businesses.  If you are asked to submit tax documentation and you are a business owner (whether a sole proprietor or major shareholder of a corporation), we'll need your business tax return and all accompanying schedules, statements, and K-1s (if applicable).  Until all business information is received, a student's aid application will be considered incomplete if tax documentation has been requested.
