Taxes & FAFSA Reporting Question

<p>My employer changed insurance programs so now the premium paid for insurance is not reported in box 1 of the W-2, it is listed as "other" elsewhere on the form with the notation pre-tax next to it.</p>

<p>Where (or is) this amount added back into income on the FAFSA form?</p>

<p>If you are talking about health insurance premium payments...I do not believe those are on the FAFSA at all.</p>

<p>Correct. Contributing to a 401k is considered a choice so it's added back in on FAFSA, paying for medical insurance is not considered a choice so it's not added back in. Neither appears in AGI when pre-tax.</p>

<p>Thanks! I was thinking the same thing....but since all of the family is on my insurance the premium is high (several thousand dollars per year listed as pre-tax) and while it didn't seem to be asking for this information on FAFSA, as it is not reported in box 1, I didn't want to be remiss in reporting.</p>

<p>I don't find the little "help" boxes all that helpful in some of the online forms!</p>
