This is question 37 on the FAFSA.

The response indicates the amount of U.S.income tax paid as reported on the student’s (and his/her spouse’s) 2016 income tax return.

If the student is “married/remarried” and filed a joint tax return, or is single, the total tax paid can be found on:

IRS Form Lines
1040 Subtract line 46 from line 56 and enter the total amount
1040A Subtract line 36 from line 28 and enter the total amount
1040EZ 10

If the student and spouse filed separate tax returns, the table below can be used to calculate their total income tax.

If the student filed a… …and the spouse filed a… Then enter the following:
1040 1040 Subtract line 46 from line 56 from both tax returns and enter the total amount
1040 1040A Subtract line 46 from line 56 from the 1040 and subtract line 36 from line 28 from the 1040A and enter the total amount

1040EZ 1040EZ Add line 10 from both tax returns and enter the total amount

If either the student or the spouse will file a federal tax return, but has not yet filed, estimate the amount that will appear in the lines noted in the table above.

The Student Taxes Paid Calculator can be used to estimate the total taxes paid if a 2016 tax form will be filed, but has not yet been completed.

The response cannot be blank unless the student will not file a tax return.
