Read more about changes to verification as a result of the DRT Outage.
The IRS Data Retrieval Tool, which allows users to transfer tax information directly to the FAFSA, is unavailable. The outage is expected to last several weeks per the Department of Education.
- If you were using the Data Retrieval Tool to submit your FAFSA: please manually enter your 2015 tax information directly from your tax returns. You may be asked to verify this information later.
- If you are asked to use the Data Retrieval Tool as part of the verification process, please submit your 2015 Tax Return Transcript (TRT) instead of using the DRT.
- Your Tax Return Transcript is available to request online via the IRS website. It is an official IRS document and is different than your tax returns. Please avoid sending your tax returns to Boise State unless specifically requested.
