Changes to the IRS Data Retrieval Tool:

 The IRS Data Retrieval Tool allows students and parents to access the IRS tax return information needed to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and transfer the tax information directly into their FAFSA from the IRS Web site.

  • The IRS DRT remains the fastest, most accurate way to input your tax return information into the FAFSA form.
  • For your privacy, the tax information you transfer from the IRS into your FAFSA form will not be visible to you. Instead, you will see “Transferred from the IRS” in the     appropriate fields on, the IRS DRT web page, and on the Student Aid Report.
