The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) will be unavailable to students and families filing the FAFSA for several weeks. The IRS and the Department of Education recently released a joint statement regarding the outage.
Students can still file the FAFSA and apply for financial aid. At this time, you can manually input the financial information with copies of your tax returns on the online FAFSA. You can obtain an IRS tax return transcript online or in the mail.
We will continue to provide more information about the IRS DRT as it becomes available. If you have any questions, please contact your regional Office of Financial Aid.
