**URGENT** Can I submit the FAFSA Today Using a 2002 Tax Return

<p>thanks!!!!</p>

<p>well you could but it prbably wouldn't be too accurate. after all I assume this is for the 2004-2005 year?
Additionally,I don't know if it is the federal requirement or schools, but I think deadline was in July of this year for 2004-2005.
sorry.</p>

<p>you would definitely need the most recent one. i'm not sure about the deadlines.</p>

<p>Why would you need to file the FAFSA using your tax information from 2002?</p>

<p>Well if you're sending in the FAFSA for the 2005-2006 school year, you can't do it until January 1st, 2005. And emeraldkity4's right - it was July 30th.</p>
