Okay, so I know that you have to wait until your parents file their income taxes to be able to get their income and write it down on the FAFSA form, but here's a question. Let's say your parents are lazy and file late, so you have to estimate their income....then what do you do? For schools like Dartmouth, they need the actual amount your parents make before they can process you for financial aid. So I talked to the lady at Dartmouth and she said to wait until my parents file their income taxes to turn in my FAFSA. She said that if I estimate my parent's income on my FAFSA, I need to add an adendum after they file, stating their true/actual income. Plus, I think some schools require a photocopy of your parent's income taxes for the 2001 fiscal year. But here's the problem, the deadline for FAFSA is in late march and parent's file their income taxes in April. So what do you do ??????? What's everyone doing about this? Thanks ps..... I didn't work this year so I have no taxes to file.
