So I've got this "friend" who put off filling out his FAFSA until now. He really should submit it within the next few days to get it out on time for his schools, but there is one thing he doesn't really understand. Applying for financial aid for the year 2007-2008 requires your 2006 tax info. Neither his parents nor him have filed a return because they are waiting until the April 15th deadline (seeing as they both probably owe money). Realizing that he needs to get his affairs in order quickly, my friend could have his taxes ready by tomorrow. However, his parents' taxes will takes significantly longer, as they need to go to a real accountant. How would my friend go about filling out his FAFSA for 2007-2008? Would he just use the "income estimator?" What did everybody else do?
