    Actually if you're in California, why don't you go to community college? I started out that way back when it was only $11/credit hour LOL. Even if it's back to 20/hour, so what? A full 12 unit course load would only set you back $240 at that rate, plus books which you can get super cheap if you try ;)

    Thats what I tried to do! And they said I could even do it online if I wanted so I could still help my grandpa. I was so excited I was going to start in january and then they found out about the tax thing and said something about needing at least a 2 year history with the irs.

    No, if you're paying out of pocket, you don't have to fill out any financial aid forms...they just bill you. You fill out the application to go to school, you go choose your courses online and at the end you get a bill.

    No, you can't, but you can begin to seek out information and counter that ignorance, can't you?
    Honestly, without having anything documented you're NOT going to be able to do anything with your life. You wont be able to take out loans, wont be able to buy a house or a car, heck when you go to get a real job they might not give it to you because nothing has been documented. What experience do you have? NONE according to them.

    You're 20 now, maybe it's time to grow up and start your own life.

    I already have a truck, and when my grandpa dies I get the ranch. So I don't want to hear that ill never have anything because I already have what I need. I would just prefer to better my education so that I can run the ranch and I will have a better life if I get an education. I don't have to, I want to. I would LOVE to go to college honestly.

    But how do you expect to finance the ranch? Your life? What happens if the truck breaks down and you don't have the cash? What if you don't get the ranch, what if something happens? You have what you need 'right now' but you're only twenty, I can guarantee you there will be more that you need.
    I don't think you're being very realistic, but if you don't want to listen to any of that...
    Do you plan on doing your taxes when the ranch is yours? If not, that's stealing.

    Ok now speaking as an accountant this is just complete blatant disregard for the laws of this country. I don't really give a rats behind who or what this man does he is breaking the law. Any and all income absolutely must be accounted for including cash. Especially since he is collecting social security that makes a huge difference with his farm. So yes the IRS would care. Because if he makes money on his farm that makes some or all of his social security taxable. This is tax fraud, plain and simple.

    You need to take a basic accounting class. Not a reading forms class. I'm sure you can find one to take online that's cheap.
