If you are required by the IRS to file your taxes: You will need to do so before you can qualify for additional funding in the July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017 Financial Aid Year.
If you filed a tax extension: You will complete the FAFSA and select “Will File” for your tax information and answer any additional questions about your income that apply. Once you file your taxes you will be required to update the FAFSA with your completed tax information. You may also be asked to provide additional information to the Student Finance Department.
If you are not required by the IRS to file: You will complete the FAFSA and select “Will not File” for your tax information. You will then need to answer any additional questions about your income that apply.
