I know these is a simliar topic that someone recently posted about this, but I didn't want to hijack their thread. Anywho I am a highschool senior. I filled out my FAFSA yesterday with my dad, but we were confused when it asked about the "as of today, what are you and your spouses investments including real estate (not your home)?" My dad figured his "investments" included his 401k, which is roughly 50k, so he put that in. Is that right? are you supposed to include the 401k? From reading the other topic, it seems like you aren't supposed to. I don't know anything about all this tax stuff so I would greatly appreciate if someone could help. My parents haven't filed their taxes yet, but they will do so. Will their taxes have this information on it? Like the total investments?
oh and also, I haven't decided if I want to go to a community college or a university yet. so what do I put when it asks me what education I am going to persue in 09-10? Does it matter?
