I mean, Feb. 1 is a pretty tough deadline. I got my stuff taxes down and information downloaded, but U-Chicago wants both parents' information, regardless of age. Neither of my parents has even started on their taxes.
I find Chicago's deadline rather ridiculous. I mean, they haven't put my file UR yet 2 months after I went complete, and they want me to have my financial aid information by February 1?
They have to be kidding me.
The NeedAccess form had me reasonably close to puncturing my eyeballs with a letter opener. I would suggest doing it sooner rather than later (if you haven't already). And have your 1040 forms completed and with you.
I did my taxes today, and FAFSA took 10 minutes because I'm old enough not to need to input my parents' info.
But on this NeedAccess thing, from what I can tell, both parents will need to have a completed 1040 to fill it out to U-Chicago's specs. That's a lot to ask by Feb. 1.
