how to file my own tax return

Can I file my own 2009 tax return TODAY?

I am a student. I received

20,000$ in loans and grants. 5,500$ were loans. I had no job in the year that I am planing on filing. I have no W2 form. show more I am a student.

I received

20,000$ in loans and grants. 5,500$ were loans.

I had no job in the year that I am planing on filing. I have no W2 form and no 1099 form.

Reason I need to file it, is I have to refile as a florida resident at my new school (graduate school).

My father wont file his tax return, so my original plan (what he said he would do) of having him claim me as a dependent and then filing for residency that way will not work.

I lived in my apartment for 3 years (but that was as a convenience for school). Maybe it will work, I do not know. I have also held my fathers house as my permanent address for > 7 years. So that should work as my "domacile".

I don't think the housing will be a problem.

Only Issue i have is, I need a tax return to

prove I am a Florida resident. I can't get my father to file his, so I think I need to file it myself. All my "income" (>50% of my expenses for that year) were through grants and loans.

Can! I file it? I basically supported myself off of grants and loans, so it should work right? Is there any form I have to have? I do in fact have my "1098-T". That is it. No W2. I had no job for the time I need to file.

Update:

I know that. To prove I am a florida resident I either have to be independent and have maintained residency myself for > a year or a dependent and my. show more I know that. To prove I am a florida resident I either have to be independent and have maintained residency myself for > a year or a dependent and my parent had to have maintained residency for > a year. Problem is, as a dependent, they REQUIRE my fathers tax return, to prove I am in fact a "dependent".

Problem is, my father wont file his tax return. So I think I need to file my own which is also needed to prove I am a "independent".
