Remember to get those taxes (both the student and parents) done ASAP. The deadline might seem very far away for those FAFSA forms, but your college AND your state may have different (EARLIER!) deadlines. The sooner you get your forms submitted, the better your chances are of getting government aid, state aid, AND grants from the college that you will be attending.
Don’t wait! Use this FAFSA tip and get your forms in!
UPDATE: As of 2016, the FAFSA filing date begins on October 1.
