Help with Taxes
We need to get done with the FAFSA - by March 1. Some students and/or parents need to complete their taxes before doing the FAFSA. If you are not planning on donig taxes and you receive income from another source, you can comlete the FAFSA with total income numbers from 2012.
There are many locations to assist you with your taxes and will allow you to file for free, if you need to do taxes and your AGI (Adjusted Gross Income) is less than $57,000 (most of our families).
For locations go to the following website: http://www.irs.gov/efile/article/0,,id=118986,00.html
