Tax Information for Filing Your FAFSA

The Department of Education and the IRS collaborated to make the FAFSA filing process simpler and more convenient for students and parents by implementing the IRS Data Retrieval system.

The IRS Data Retrieval System:

  • Migrates your IRS data directly into the FAFSA
  • Ensures accuracy
  • Saves time
  • Reduces the likelihood of being selected for verification
  • Requires less paperwork for our office

Your tax return will be available for data retrieval 7 days after electronic submission to the IRS. Visit and the site will walk you through the entire retrieval process or view an online tutorial.
