2011-2012 Separation of Income (SOI) Form
This form is for a student or parent (in the case of a dependent student) who filed a joint return for the year 2010 but is now widowed, divorced, or separated. Student or parent must use the joint return to factor out the individual income and taxes paid. Read the instructions below before completing this form. Attach a copy of your signed joint federal tax return if you have not yet submitted it to the University. To assist you with completing the Separation of Income (SOI) form, specific line references for the 2010 U.S. tax returns are provided. INSTRUCTIONS Starting with the income figures from your W-2(s), add in any income from the joint return that represents your personal income. Any other income or interest earned should be assessed at 50 percent, to include business or farm gains or losses.
