Estimated Tap Award **

*  The Total NYS Taxable Balance is the sum of the student's and parent's New York State Taxable Incomes plus New York State, Federal and local government pension income, plus any private pension and annuity amount excluded in 2012. If you don't have this figure available, please use the TAP Award Estimator.

**  The Quick TAP Award Estimator is a tool to illustrate the current formula for TAP awards. It is not a predictor of your individual award and you should not rely on the Estimator in making your individual financial decisions. The Estimator functions based on the current TAP formula in law. It is subject to change.
