Paying for College

If I'm a senior for this year (class of 21') do I need to fill out the FASFA form for 2020-2021?

I've been stressed out over this form, it was brought to my attention that I may need to wait to fill out the form, I'm really confused about whether or not I need to fill out this years form. It's my first time filling out this form, and everyone keeps telling me I need to apply extra early. So could you guys please give me some advice on what to do. The bottom line is this am I filling out the 2020-2021 form or the 2021-2022.
