FAFSA: IRS Data Retrieval Tool


If you estimated your 2014 income and tax information when you first submitted the 2015-2016 FAFSA, you must update your income information once you have filed your taxes. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool is the best way to do that because it transfers your tax information directly to the FAFSA. However, some people are ineligible and must request a tax transcript from the IRS. For more information on FAFSA and how to use the Data Retrieval Tool you can download this document and review page four.
