The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) worksheet in the TaxAct® program is only used if you choose to print the worksheet for help completing the application on the FAFSA website. If you do not choose to print the worksheet, it will have no effect on your tax return.
By default, the worksheet starts with the Parent box checked. This entry does not affect your return in any way and can be ignored if you are not utilizing the worksheet.
