For FAFSA no one should be putting their parent's info - the schools that want parent info want it from Need Access or CSS Profile. For most schools being independent from parents on tax forms for 5 years is enough to not need the info, but not for all. Check with your individual schools to find out. If you go to www.needaccess.org
you can find out what schools participate in that form. Or you can check individual schools. For Michigan, if you were claimed in 2000 on your parents return then they do need parent info.
