Usually, you do not need your tax transcripts; we can use your 1040. If you use the 1040, please make sure that you attach Schedule 1, 2 or 3 if they were part of the return. Please keep in mind that your Financial Aid Advisor may request additional information if needed
The FAFSA uses what is called Prior/Prior year tax information. That means the taxes used for the FAFSA aren't from last year but the year before. For example, the 2023-2024 FAFSA uses the 2021 taxes, not the 2022 taxes. You will see this listed in the documents section of the portal.
