What the hell is this?
What does this mean?
This came up when I tried to enter 0 for taxable and non taxable income for my parents.
"You have entered an insufficient amount of taxable and/or non-taxable income for your parent.
Please review the definition of non-taxable income, which can be found in the Help section."
wtf, isn't it okay to enter 0?
my parents made 0 dollars last year, actually, like negative income.

Are you sure they made "0 dollars"? I'm pretty sure that's referring to their income they made at their job. Unless both of your parents are unemployed and are somehow paying off massive debt at the same time.

Despite how long I've been hanging around SDN, I still snicker every time I see a thread titled "fap".
Me. Too.

Especially when the thread starts with "What the hell is this? What does this mean?" You didn't figure it out in the shower when you were 12?

i emailed them.
the told me to put 2400 for taxable income if our parents made under that.
btw. my parents have a small business that LOST money last year.
so, no they do not have TAXABLE income last year.

"Thank you for contacting the AAMC Fee Assistance Program.

Under nontaxable income, please enter the savings amount your parent's used for living expenses in 2009.

If your parents are showing a lost on their Federal Tax form (1040), you should enter the minimum acceptable income value, which is $2400 in the Adjustable Gross Income section. Entering this amount will never cause you to become ineligible (as long as additional income reported on the application doesn't exceed 300% of the poverty level for the family size). Upon tentative approval, you will be asked to provide the supporting documentation showing the negative AGI, and we will verify accordingly before making a final decision.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at [email protected] or (202) 828-0600.

Thank you,"
