Simplified Needs Test--FAFSA
I have read that if the parents' adjusted gross income is less than $50,,000 and the parents filed or *were eligible* to file an IRS Form 1040A, the dependent student qualifies for these simplified version of FAFSA. We filled out our taxes using an online program that automatically uses the 1040. From what I am reading online, I think we may have been eligible to file a 1040A. How do I go about verifying this? I want to be sure that we fill out the FAFSA correctly and honestly.
