This is question 37 on the paper FAFSA.

If you use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool and transfer your information from the IRS into your FAFSA, the answer to this question will be pre-filled and identified as “Transferred from the IRS.”

This question cannot be left blank unless you will not file a tax return.

If the answer to this question is not pre-filled, enter your total tax amount for 2013.

If you filed (or if married, you and your spouse filed a joint tax return), the total tax can be found on:

IRS Form Enter Amount From Line
1040 55
