In January, parents may ask if they should submit their 2018 taxes since they have not yet completed their 2019 taxes? Additionally, they may wonder if they need to resubmit their 2018 again (assuming they have not completed taxes for 2019) when applying for aid for the upcoming school year. In both of these instances the answer is "yes." We do not keep copies of tax returns from year to year, and are unable to append a tax return from one application year to another. Once again, this is a part of the process to treat every applicant in the exact same manner. If a parent applies for aid for 2020-21 and submits their 2018 taxes, you may request that as soon as they complete their 2019 taxes they send those to us, as well. Please let me know if you have any questions about this process, or if there is any confusion.
