The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT) electronically transfers your federal tax return information into your FAFSA form.

The IRS DRT can be used by both students and parents. Click here to learn more about the IRS DRT.

Helpful Hints for Using the DRT

If you still have problems, the Website help desk can be reached at 1-800-829-1040 (Monday through Friday) 7 am – 7 pm (Eastern Standard Time).

If you are a Dependent Student, you will need your parent’s or guardian’s tax information to complete the FAFSA.  You can import this data into your application using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (see below).

Independent Student

An independent student is one of the following: at least 24 years old, married, a graduate or professional student, a veteran, a member of the armed forces, an orphan, a ward of the court, or someone with legal dependents other than a spouse, an emancipated minor or someone who is homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Get additional information to determine your dependency status.

Dependent Student

A student who does not meet any of the criteria for an independent student.

You will be able to save your application if for any reason you can’t finish it in one session.
