IRS Data Retrieval Tool

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT) allows you to transfer your income data directly into the FAFSA from the IRS. Use of the IRS DRT speeds up the processing of your FAFSA.

If you are selected for verification for the 2018-2019 and/or 2019-2020 school years and are required to submit tax return transcripts, you may update your FAFSA using the IRS DRT instead of providing paper copies of your tax return transcripts.

If you are unable to use the DRT and are required to submit tax return transcripts, you may request them online through the IRS 'Get Transcript' option. Instructions for requesting a copy of tax transcripts can be found here.
