New federal regulations now require a federal Tax Return Transcript, obtained from the IRS, as the only acceptable documentation. The New Jersey Tuition Aid Grant program is following these regulations to simplify your application process. Personal copies of your tax return are no longer acceptable documentation. Requesting a federal Tax Return Transcript is as easy as 1-2-3! Don't forget to open and read your mail! Respond to all requests for information! The deadline to submit the information is November 15, 2015 for fall TAG funds; March 15, 2016 for spring TAG funds; or within 30 days of the request, whichever is later. Missing the deadline = losing your TAG. Don't miss out on one of the most generous financial aid grant programs in the country!
