How much did your parents pay to their IRA or Keogh?
This is question 92b on the paper Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA?) form.
The answer to this question might be prefilled with "Transferred from the IRS."
IRA/Keogh/SEP/SIMPLE payments can be found on IRS Form 1040 Schedule 1-lines 28 + 32.
If your parents filed separate tax returns, calculate their total IRA deductions and payments to self-employed SEP, SIMPLE, Keogh, and other qualified plans by adding the amounts from IRS Form 1040 Schedule 1-lines 28+32 from both tax returns and enter the total amount.
If one or both parents will file a federal tax return, but haven’t yet filed, estimate the amount that will appear in the lines noted above.
Note: The line number references above are from the IRS tax form, not from the W-2 form.
