● All families who are required to file taxes will need to submit their 2018 W-2’s and 2018 tax returns (not just those with business income). Thus families need to work on their tax returns as soon as they are able. To accommodate this requirement the round #1 deadline has been moved to April 15th.
● The FACTS Helpline Hours for parents are now Monday-Thursday 7:30am-7pm and Friday 7:30am-5pm. (The chat feature hours on the website have not changed.)
● Families can now upload JPEG images for required documents, including from a mobile device. If using a mobile device, the applicant can be a picture of the document uploaded from their camera roll.
Also, ALL families are required to apply for STO.
