I am reluctantly posting to this thread.

First a question - Do you understand the difference between tax avoidance (which is legal) and tax evasion (which is not legal and can you thrown in jail)?

There are similar issues when filing a FAFSA, and several of your ideas are much closer to "evasion" than avoidance.

Nonetheless, you may wish to peruse, which is a site with much information.

In addition, this website - - clearly shows that 100% of the child/student's income is not applied to reduce aid (or increase EFC).

And listen to 2gifts, she is very wise.

Regards, JAFO
