When completing a FAFSA application, income information is requested from two years prior (2018-2019 FAFSA looks at income from 2016 tax year). Sometimes a family's financial situation has changed substantially from the tax year being considered on the FAFSA application. Other times, a unique circumstance exists and a student, while considered a dependent student on the FAFSA, may actually be an independent student. There are processes to appeal your FAFSA information.
