WASFAA is pleased to pass along CASFAA's news announcing the ever popular "Tax Transcript Decoder©" courtesy of our esteemed colleague and lifetime member of CASFAA Cheryl Foster-Hunt.

2017-18 Tax Transcript Decoder

The tax transcript decoder assists financial aid administrators with completing the verification process for 2017-2018. This publication includes sample 2015 tax returns - Form 1040EZ, Form 1040A and Form 1040 - and related tax transcripts. In addition to these cross-referenced documents, the publication also includes appendix items helpful in the process of verification. Please feel free to share this useful tool with other schools.

A little bit about the Decoder's creator: Cheryl has worked in the financial aid industry for 27 years. For the past 11 years she has provided regulatory and compliance training to higher education professionals across the country. She is a versatile training professional who excels at taking complex information and presenting it in an easy-to-understand, interesting and entertaining way. Cheryl has an uncommon blend of hands-on experience in the financial aid office, strong public speaking skills and the ability to develop and deliver high quality training.
