Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

Your son needs a Verification of Non-Filing Letter from the IRS because he is not required to file a tax return.

Your son will use Form 4506-T to request this letter from the IRS.

The following link contains information as well as a link to Form 4506-T:

https://www.irs.gov/individuals/tax-return-transcript-types-and-ways-to-order-them

https://www.irs.gov/uac/about-form-4506t

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb
