yeah, I already did mine, they tell you to come back later and fill in this year's tax return. I definitely hated to see there response---'You do not qualify for federal pell grants because you have a bachelor degree'.
However, schools do run out of money, and many won't hand out small scholarships and grants until they receive your fafsa. Best to make a reasonable estimate and submit, then go back and correct it if necessary. The fafsa has a "will file" option when asking about taxes, so that they know your figures are not set in stone.
I was wondering...I know my school says I need to have my parent's financial info filled out too, but does that mean they also have to apply for pin numbers too? I was filling out the fafsa portion about my parent's finances and stopped at that point because I wasn't sure what to do.
Nope. Unless they want to fill out that portion themselves. Otherwise, just have them use your pin and fill it in, or send you a copy of their taxes so you can fill it in. The school will eventually require a copy of their taxes anyway. In the previous post, submit even if you aren't accepted yet. You'll be one step ahead of the game when you do get accepted, it could be a little late if you get accepted in march or something like that.
