March 2017 Update: IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) unavailable

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.

Please contact our office or your local IRS office if you need further assistance. Thank you for your patience with this unexpected outage.
