Qualification for our program requires a total taxable household income at or below our financial guidelines as listed at www.smileschangelives.org/financial. Please note: It is YOUR responsibility to determine if you meet these financial qualifications before applying. Your application will be denied and your fee will NOT be refunded if your income does not qualify. [Foster parents or agencies that are applying for a child do not need to submit proof of income. Learn more]
You MUST submit a copy of the most recent year’s Federal Tax Form 1040, 1040A or Supplemental Security Income award letter as proof of income in the US or a T4 and a Tax Assessment form for Canada. (note: we do not accept Social Security benefits letters as proof of income). If you do not file Form 1040 or 1040A or receive Supplement Security Income benefits or a T4, your application will NOT be approved. We DO NOT accept any other type of proof of income. Tax forms/SSI awards letters that are altered in any way, including removing/blacking out Social Security numbers, will NOT be accepted. If you are submitting applications for more than one child, you MUST include a copy of your tax form(s)/SSI awards letter with EACH application.
If submitting Form 1040/1040A, please note:
