    The federal government offers two options for preparing a federal student aid application (FAFSA) - either prepare it on the government's Dept. of Education website OR get help from a professional, fee-based FAFSA preparation service. The federal government offers to FAFSA preparation options because of the form's complexity - just as it offers similar preparation options for income taxes. The largest and oldest FAFSA preparation service is Student Financial Aid Services - www.fafsa.com - which has earned an A+ Better Business Bureau rating during its 20 years helping more than a million students prepare FAFSAs. Students who want the peace of mind of accurately and quickly preparing a FAFSA often turn to fee-based FAFSA preparation because FAFSA errors can reduce aid awards. When choosing a fee-based FAFSA preparation service, select one with reasonable fees ($100), reads each answer for accuracy, is transparent about options, has excellent client recommendations, and has an A+ BBB rating.
