IRS DATA RETRIEVAL TOOL
The IRS Data Retrieval Tool is currently suspended for the 2017/2018 aid year. This option is now available starting October 1, 2017 only for the 2018/2019 aid year.
As of April 24, 2017 we can accept SIGNED taxpayer copies of Federal tax returns and Certification of Non-Filing form for 17/18 verification requirements.
Some students, upon completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), are selected for a review process called verification. Verification helps the school to confirm that the information filed on the FAFSA matches the income taxes filed in the prior year with the IRS and to verify the following:
- Household size
- Number in college
- Untaxed income
- Child support paid
If your FAFSA has been selected for verification, you will be notified of this on your Student Aid Report (SAR), from the Central Processor, and by your school of choice.
Failure to comply with verification will result in no federal or state aid being funded to you.
