    If the financial aid laws require that your parents' income be 8ncluded for puroposes of determining the value of the financial aid a student under twenty four receives, then the federal government is automatically assuming that the family is claimiung the student as a dependent.  

    They can't require the student to use the parents income, and then also not allow the parents to claim them as a dependent.  They could. It just seems counterintuitive.

    •  Two different "theys." (0+ / 0-)

      Feds require student to use parents' income in applying for aid.

      NC Repug legislature disallows claiming the kid as a dependent on NC state taxes.

      No intersection, no conflict, no inconsistency.
