The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is currently unavailable and is expected to continue to be unavailable until fall 2017.

This inconvenient outage does not prevent students and parents from completing the FAFSA. It may still be completed using their 2015 tax information for both the 2016-17 and 2017-18 financial aid years. 2015 tax information will, however, need to be entered manually in those fields on the FAFSA as long as the DRT is unavailable.

For more information, view this video.
