IRS Data Retrieval Tool Tips and Instructions

If your FAFSA is selected for verification by the U.S. Department of Education, you may be asked to complete the IRS Data Retrieval Tool for student and/or parent tax information on your FAFSA. 

If you are ineligible or choose not to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, you are instead required to submit the applicable student and/or parent IRS Tax Return Transcript(s) and a copy of all W-2s used in filing taxes.

You can request a Tax Return Transcript from the IRS free-of-charge using one of the methods below:
