We received some very helpful information we want to pass along to you…

The IRS has advised college students and families that, when filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, they can use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to obtain tax information necessary to fill out the form. Other options are also available to obtain tax information (IRS Tax Tip 2019-82). The federal government offers various forms of financial aid for college students, including loans and scholarships. To be eligible for such aid, students must fill out a FAFSA form each year, which contains financial and other relevant information on the student and the student’s family. Students filling out the form must provide information from their most recent federal tax return. Students should, therefore, keep copies of their returns. If copies of the most recent return are not available, there are several other options for the student, read more here.
