How much did your parents pay to their IRA or Keogh?
This is question 94b on the paper FAFSA.
The answer to this question may be pre-filled with "Transferred from the IRS."
IRA/Keogh/SEP/SIMPLE payments can be found on:
IRS Form 1040 – Use Lines: 28 + 32
IRS Form 1040A – Use Line: 17
If your parents filed separate tax returns, use the table below to calculate their total IRA deductions and payments to self-employed SEP, SIMPLE, Keogh, and other qualified plans.
|If one parent filed a…||…and the other parent filed a…||Then enter the following:|
|1040||1040||Add lines 28 + 32 from both tax returns and enter the total amount|
|1040||1040A||Add lines 28 + 32 from the 1040 and line 17 from the 1040A and enter the total amount|
|1040A||1040A||Add line 17 from both tax returns and enter the total amount|
If one or both parents will file a federal tax return, but have not yet filed, estimate the amount that will appear in the lines noted in the table above.
