Is Work Study Included in the Adjusted Gross Income on the FASA?
My husband and I are arguing about this and I am about to pull my hair out.
He says work study is not taxable and should not be included and that we also do not have to include it on my daughter's tax return (which she is filling because of a summer job).
I say work study needs to be included on tax returns.
I also think I need to add it on question 43c on the FAFSA. This is the following question:
"Taxable earnings from Work-study, Assistantships or Fellowships
Taxable earnings from need-based employment programs, such as Federal Work-study and need-based employment portions of fellowships and assistantships."
He is hung up on the word "taxable" and says we do not include it because it is not taxable.
Please help settle this arguement!
