Section H "Preparer's Use Only"
The law requires that if anyone other than a student, the student's spouse, or the student's parents prepares the application, then the preparer must write in his or her name, the firm/company name (if applicable), the firm/company address, and either the firm/company's Employer Identification Number (EIN) (as assigned by the IRS) or the preparer's SSN.

Question 108 requires the preparer to sign the form.
High school counselors, FAAs, and others who help students with their applications by actually filling out line items on the form or dictating responses to items on the form are considered preparers. Preparers must complete this section even if they are not paid for their services.
