IRS Data Retrieval Tool Nonfunctional Until Next FAFSA Season

  • The IRS Data Retrieval Tool, which allows students and parents to transfer tax information directly to the FAFSA, will remain unavailable until the start of the next FAFSA season, according to the Department of Education (ED). We regret any inconvenience.
  • To fill out a FAFSA, you can manually input your tax information. Remember, if you're filling out the 2017-18 FAFSA form, your 2015 tax information is required (not 2016).
  • Students and parents who are required to provide 2015 tax information must submit a 2015 Tax Return Transcript.
  • Click here for instructions for how to order a 2015 Tax Return Transcript.
