What was your adjusted gross income for 2018?
This is question 36 on the paper Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form.
The answer to this question might be prefilled with "Transferred from the IRS."
This question can’t be left blank unless you won’t file a tax return.
If the answer to this question isn’t prefilled, enter the amount of your (and if married, your spouse’s) adjusted gross income (AGI) in 2018.
AGI includes more than wages earned. For example, it can include alimony, Social Security, and business income.
If you filed a tax return (or if married, you and your spouse filed a joint tax return), the AGI can be found on IRS Form 1040–Line 7.
If you and your spouse filed separate tax returns, calculate your total AGI by adding line 7 from both tax returns and entering the total amount.
If you or your spouse will file a federal tax return, but haven’t yet filed, estimate the amount that will appear in line 7 of your IRS Form 1040.
If one of you filed a tax return and the other didn’t and won’t file, add line 7 from your IRS Form 1040 to your spouse’s income earned from working (for example, earnings from the W-2 form[s] and/or any other earning statements).
Note: The line numbers above are from the IRS tax form, not from the W-2 form.
|If your (and if married, your spouse’s) 2018 AGI is||Enter|
|10 million or more||9999999|
|Negative 10 million or less||-9999999|
