Customer Question

My daughter who is away at college received a letter during tax season, from the IRS trying to verify a return she didn't file. She replied to website online to verify it wasn't her, and that she wouldn't be filing for 2014. However, she has been told by her school that she needs to file to be eligible for her financial aid award this year. she only made 10,000 this year, but she has prepared a return. Should she also send an identity theft affidavit with her return ?

yes, she should file the affidavit and make a formal complaint with social security in regards ***** ***** fraud

in terms of filing a return, if she was declared a dependent on your return, she would not have to file,

if she only made $10,000 a tax return is not needed, however she should apply to obtain a possible refund, as it seems she would qualify,

Expert:  Wallstreet Esq. replied 1 year ago.

for school purposes, the 10,000 will be used to determine financial aid, and it should help her.
