Applicants are not allowed to substitute the current year’s income for income during the previous year. If they do this, their FAFSA will be flagged for verification. Instead, they should ask the college’s financial aid administrator for a professional judgment review, also known as a financial aid appeal. The financial aid administrator can make adjustments to the data elements on the FAFSA based on adequate documentation of special circumstances.

It was just a couple of years ago that the FAFSA form asked for your current year’s tax data. Now, you can submit data from a past year’s tax return that’s easily accessible via or the IRS data retrieval tool within the form. For the FAFSA for academic year 2020-2021, you can actually use your 2018 return.

For example, from October 1, 2020 to June 30, 2021, you could be applying for financial aid for either the 2020-2021 academic year or the 2021-2022 academic year. If you’re applying for financial aid for the 2020–2021 academic school year, file a 2020–2021 FAFSA form, which is based on 2018 income tax returns. If you’re applying for financial aid for the 2021–2022 school year, you should file a 2021–2022 FAFSA form, which is based on 2019 income tax returns.

A student who is engaged to be married is not considered to be married. College financial aid administrators can ask for a copy of the marriage certificate to confirm the marriage. The FAFSA cannot be updated to reflect a mid-year change in a student’s marital status, except in rare circumstances.
