I claimed him on my taxes this year but i told him next year I would not. Just that this year I still provided over half the year before he moved out on his own so i get to claim him. next year he can claim himself and his wife(who is also in college).
My question is the difference between the 1040 form and the FAFSA form. I know where I stand with the IRS, not sure what the deal is with the Student Aid form.
I dont see why I should have to fill out our income info for next year if I'm not claiming him as a dependent but what makes common sense to me does not apply to the government LOL.
I kinda knew this would happen but the cost (gamble) of not having his tuition 100% paid for versus having a home dh and I own free and clear....well hey, its my life y'know.
