FAFSA on the Web Worksheet 

Some students prefer to complete something on paper before completing the online FAFSA. A worksheet has been designed specifically for this purpose. The FAFSA on the Web Worksheet tells you what documents (for example, your tax forms) you'll need to refer to as you fill out the FAFSA, and it shows you the FAFSA questions so you can fill in your answers in preparation for applying at FAFSA The Worksheet is an optional tool; you can go straight to the FAFSA Web site to apply if you prefer.

After you submit your tax return, correct any income or tax information that is different from what you initially submitted on your FAFSA.
