To protect sensitive taxpayer data, the IRS and Federal Student Aid announced in March 2017 the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on and will be unavailable until extra security protections can be added. While they are working to resolve these issues as quickly as possible, students and families should plan for the tool to be offline until the start of the next FAFSA season (i.e., October 2017).

Until further notice, families, who have not already used the Data Retrieval Tool on this FAFSA, will need to report tax information from their own copies of tax documents when completing or updating a FAFSA and will need to request tax transcripts from IRS or supply signed copies of the appropriate tax forms if they are selected for verification.
