Where should I find my parent's education credit on their income tax return?
If line 33 is blank, they did not take either of the education credits (there are two). Hopefully, they were not eligible to do so (not because of their income • if their income was too high to claim the credit, then it would also be too high to use the 1040A), or didn’t have any qualifying expenses, and they didn’t just “forget” to claim it.
Does it make sense for a high net worth family to fill out/submit the FAFSA or is it for those with financial need only?
Families have a tendency to underestimate eligibility for need-based aid and overestimate eligibility for merit-based aid. So, it is worthwhile to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) even if you are certain you will get no need-based grants and even if you got nothing other than loans last year. Unless you can pay the full sticker price using pocket change, file the FAFSA.The federal student loans are cheaper than private student loans, and a good option if the parents want their child to have skin in the game. Even wealthy families will qualify for the unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan and Federal Parent PLUS Loan.The financial aid formulas are complicated, and there are subtle aspects that can make a difference in eligibility for need-based aid:Low-income but high-net-worth individuals may qualify for aid, since the FAFSA ignores all assets if the parent AGI is less than $50,000 and the parents were eligible to file an IRS Form 1040A or 1040EZ.The number of children in college at the same time can have a big impact, since the parent contribution portion of the expected family contribution (EFC) is divided by the number of children in college. When the number of children in college increases from 1 to 2, it is like dividing the parent income in half.Financial aid is based on financial need, which is the difference between total college costs and the EFC. Therefore, there are two ways to qualify for aid: have a lower EFC or enroll at a higher-cost college. Even wealthy students may qualify for need-based aid at some of the highest-cost private colleges.So, unless your family is in the top 1% for income and assets, you’re an only child and you will be enrolling in an in-state public college, you should file the FAFSA. You can’t get aid if you don’t apply.
Are US educated foreigners who are currently living and working abroad but who are paying their US student loans, eligible for an interest/tax refund?
What taxes are you expecting a refund of?A person whose only connection to the United States is having previously been admitted to the United States as a nonimmigrant student has, once they’ve left the United States, no ongoing tax obligations to the United States. Furthermore, since you live and work abroad, you will not have any of your income subject to US withholding, and so there are no excess withholdings from your income to be refunded.Since a nonresident alien is not entitled to apply for or receive US federally-subsidized student loans, any student loans you may have obtained while you were a nonresident alien studying in the US are purely private loans. You are not entitled to any benefit from the United States in exchange for paying your private debts.Honestly, I do not understand this question. Why would anyone think they’re entitled to free money from the US government simply because they’re paying off a private debt?The OQ has clarified the question in details added since I first answered. Apparently, the OQ is being confused by receiving a Form 1098-E from her loan provider, and misunderstood the explanatory materials that accompany this form.This is IRS Form 1098-E. Every US entity that receives $600 or more in interest payments from a person on a qualified student loan in a given calendar year is required to send this form (or an IRS-acceptable substitute) to the person who made those payments.The form that is sent to the payer must also includes instructions for the recipient that must include this language:A person (including a financial institution, a governmental unit, and an educational institution) that receives interest payments of $600 or more during the year on one or more qualified student loans must furnish this statement to you. You may be able to deduct student loan interest that you actually paid in 2022 on your income tax return. However, you may not be able to deduct the full amount of interest reported on this statement. Do not contact the recipient/lender for explanations of the requirements for (and how to figure) any allowable deduction for the interest paid. Instead, for more information, see Pub. 970, and the Student Loan Interest Deduction Worksheet in your Form 1040 or 1040A instructions.US federal income tax law allows, in most situations, for individuals who pay interest on a “qualified student loan” to exclude some or all of their income that was used to pay that interest from their taxable income; basically, the income used to pay the interest on the loan is not subject to taxation. This will generally reduce one’s tax liability. There is, however, no provision for refunding any of the interest.The law requires these notices to be sent to every person who pays interests to a US entity, whether or not that person is a US taxpayer. Obviously, someone who is not a US taxpayer will be unable to gain any tax benefit from this provision (the US taxable income of someone who is not a US taxpayer is obviously zero), but the loan holder is still required to send the notice.It generally pays to read the instructions that comes with such forms closely, with full attention to detail.
Will the amount I have in my investments affect my FAFSA?
Will the amount I have in my investments affect my FAFSA?For most applicants, yes. Applicants are required to report the net worth of their investments on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as of the date they file the FAFSA.This is the definition of investments from the FAFSA instructions for the PDF version of the FAFSA:Investments include real estate (do not include the home in which you live), rental property (includes a unit within a family home that has its own entrance, kitchen, and bath rented to someone other than a family member), trust funds, UGMA and UTMA accounts, money market funds, mutual funds, certificates of deposit, stocks, stock options, bonds, other securities, installment and land sale contracts (including mortgages held), commodities, etc.Investments also include qualified educational benefits or education savings accounts (e.g., Coverdell savings accounts, 529 college savings plans and the refund value of 529 prepaid tuition plans). For a student who does not report parental information, the accounts owned by the student (and/or the student’s spouse) are reported as student investments in question 42. For a student who must report parental information, the accounts are reported as parental investments in question 91, including all accounts owned by the student and all accounts owned by the parents for any member of the household.Investments do not include the home you live in, the value of life insurance, retirement plans (401[k] plans, pension funds, annuities, noneducation IRAs, Keogh plans, etc.) or cash, savings and checking accounts already reported in questions 41 and 90. Investments also do not include UGMA and UTMA accounts for which you are the custodian, but not the owner.If a small business (less than 100 full-time or full-time equivalent employees) is owned and controlled by the family (51% or more), it is not reported as an asset on the FAFSA due to the small business exclusion.If the family qualifies for the Simplified Needs Test, all assets are disregarded. To qualify for the simplified needs test, parent income must be less than $50,000 and they must satisfy either the tax return test (eligible to file a 1040A or 1040EZ), either parent must be a dislocated worker, or someone in the household must have received certain means-tested federal benefits within the last two years.
