Help with the FAFSA
Doing taxes for 2012 --- If the student or his/her parents need to complete taxes for the 2012 year, please complete them before doing the FAFSA.
Not doing taxes for 2012 --- If you are not planning on doing taxes because your income from 2012 is from a different source (SSI, Welfare, etc.), you can do the FAFSA just knowing the total income you attained in 2012. Do the FAFSA asap.
