Facts of the Month

What if I won't have my taxes done before my college or state's FAFSA deadline?

We thought we would address a frequently asked question for this month's fact of the month. The FAQ is: What if I am not going to have my taxes done before my college's or state's FAFSA filing deadline? The answer: You can file the FAFSA using good estimates. However, your FAFSA will not be considered complete until you go back into the FAFSA and pull in your current tax information using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool. For Indiana residents, you have to have this done by May 15th.
