I'm sure I could find the answer to this question somewhere on the internet but I know a lot of you are students so I thought it might be quicker to ask you.<br><br>
I have one child that I claimed on my taxes for 2006. I have another baby that is due in April of 2007. There is a question on the FAFSA asking about dependents for the year of 2007, and I'm wondering if I should enter 1 or 2? I wish I could just copy/paste the question but I've already submitted my FAFSA. I think I can make a correction to it if I need to.<br><br>
Would it be better for me to go back and change it to two?

I would go back and change the answer. It would get you more finaid for the year, and on your 2007 taxes you will be able to claim 2 dependents.<br><br>
Good Luck!

I second this. FAFSA can be rather stingy, and you WILL have 2 dependents. So, go with that.

I would add the second too. Last year when I filed I did so about 3 weeks before finding out that I was pregnant. I wish I had known when I did filed.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
