I have a 25 Year old son who has not worked since he was 16. I have been claiming him on my taxes every year. I want him to go to college and get his lie started. Can he apply for a FASFA loan?

Yes, he can submit the FAFSA, and because of his age, will be considered independent (even if you claim him on taxes).

Ok, but since he has no tax under his name, can he use my paperwork?

He will not need to provide any tax information providing he was not required to file as determined by IRS guidelines. There is an option on the FAFSA form to select "Will Not File", allowing him to skip the tax-related questions. Your information should not be provided since he is over the age of 24.

FAFSA is a good move for your son according to his age. If it didn't, education loan is another a good option.
