IRS Data Retrieval Tool

Parents and students shall use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) to complete the income information on the FAFSA. This tool allows students and parents to import IRS tax return information to complete the FAFSA, preventing errors and reducing additional documentation requests. When using the DRT, income information will be masked in order to protect your privacy. Please contact the university's financial aid staff prior to making changes to the imported information, as altering it can delay the processing time of your FAFSA and will create unnecessary documentation requests. Download a step-by-step walk through of the IRS DRT.

If you are eligible to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, we highly recommend using the tool for several reasons:

  • It’s the easiest way to provide your income and tax data.
  • It will speed up your financial aid application processing.
  • It’s the best way of ensuring your FAFSA has accurate income and tax information.
  • You won’t need to provide a copy of tax returns.
