However, when I received my needbased aid, it did say that I needed to send in my parents tax returns when (if) I accepted. This might be why I was confused, so I'm sorry for the misinformation!
Now I get what you're saying. I checked their fin aid stuff for FAFSA, but that only explicitly mention yourself (and spouse). As far as I know, you don't need parental information to fill out FAFSA (I didn't). Need-based definitely requires parental financial aid stuff, though.
