Tax Return Forms & Schedules

Financial aid applicants to Smith College who are tax filers are required to submit signed federal tax forms to Student Financial Services. (Hand-written signatures are required; electronic signatures are not accepted.) The entire tax form with all schedules and W-2s is required.


Please note the following:

  • W-2/s submitted are expected to total the amount of wages reported on line 1 of the 2018 Federal Form 1040.
  • There may be multiple business schedules or forms (ex. Schedule C, Schedule K-1, Form 1120S, Form 1065, etc) depending on the number of businesses owned/operated or listed on the Schedule E. All schedules and forms are expected.

Where to Send Documents

Documents should be sent to College Board’s document imaging service, Institutional Documentation Service (IDOC). Financial aid documents are to be uploaded electronically to IDOC where they will be scanned and sent electronically to Smith.

College Board will send IDOC instructions via email to applicants who have completed the CSS PROFILE. To ensure deadlines are met, please complete the CSS PROFILE prior to the deadline so that documents can be uploaded to IDOC by our deadline. For more information, please visit the IDOC website.

Documents may also be submitted through Net Partner (Smith’s financial aid portal).
