What can I do about my FAFSA if my parents will not fill it out?

Charleston, SC |

Moved out of my parents house 2 years ago for 6 months then moved back in at the end of the year. They filed me on their taxes for 2011 even though I was 18, not in school, and was only living with them for 6 months out of the year. This year they filed me on their taxes again and I only lived with them for 4 months out of 2012. They refuse to give me their tax information to fill out my FAFSA.

  1. I have not done on of these in a long time but I think you should be able to file it yourself because you are emancipated.
