Okay since the Penn forum isnt giving me any help and I see the Cornell thread below is, I'm gonna ask for some help. (My parents don't speak English so I have to do this myself)
^^the form for reference.
How do you find the answer for number 12 about taxes paid in 2004? I cant find it on the 1040. It asks for State and local income taxes, real estate taxes, total itemized deductions (what does that mean?)
There are columns for info for 2004, 2005, and 2006. I only have the 2004 tax forms. How am I supposed to fill out for 2005 AND 2006??
Should I put my earnings after tax or before?
For question 4, estimated resources. It said "list the amts you expect to contribute toward your educational and living expenses for 2006-2007 from these sources. Do not include anticipated financial aid." Are they asking us to find our EFC? or just guess on how much we can afford?
It also asks for contribution to IRAs, I have no idea how to say that in Chinese (don't really know what that is either) but on the tax forms I see on 15a "IRA distributions" that there is nothing. Does that mean it's 0 for contribution to IRAs?
