IRS Data Retrieval Tool
Tax Return Transcript
You cannot submit your Federal Tax Return (1040, 1040A, etc.) to the Financial Aid Office if you are selected for verification. Unless you filed an Amended Tax Return. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool allows users to link to the IRS Web site and securely transfer original IRS tax return information into their FAFSA, but not Form 1040X amended tax return information. Therefore, your IRS tax return information may not completely reflect what you need to report on the FAFSA. Remember, the Form 1040X is used to correct your original filed tax return.
Important: If you filed an AMENDED TAX RETURN, we will need a copy of the original signed tax return, a transcript obtained from the IRS that lists tax account information of the tax filer for the tax year, and a copy of the IRS Form 1040X that was filed with the IRS.
Please use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool in the FAFSA, if you can.
If you cannot use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool in the FAFSA, then you must order a tax return transcript from IRS.gov.
If you need to make a correction to your FAFSA, you must login using your FSA ID, then click Make FAFSA Corrections.
Victims of identity theft who cannot get a return transcript or use the Data Retrieval Tool must call the IRS’s Identity Protection Specialized Unit (IPSU) toll-free number at 800-908-4490. A victim of IRS identity theft who is not able to obtain an IRS Tax Return Transcript or use the IRS DRT must contact the IRS at 1-800-908-4490. Upon authentication of the tax filer’s identity, the IRS will provide by U.S. Postal Service, a printout of the tax filer’s IRS income tax return information.
What if I’m unable to use Get Transcript by Mail?
If you are unable to use Transcript by Mail, you may try the automated phone transcript service at 1-800-908-9946 to receive your return transcript by mail. Please allow 5 to 10 calendar days for delivery.
Please Note: On Class-Web, under Financial Aid tab > My Eligibility > Student Requirements, if you are required to bring your Parent Tax Transcript and/or Student Tax Transcript (NOT the tax returns, unless an amended tax return was filed) to our office; if you have been selected for Verification.
