Beginning February 1, 2012, students and parents who have completed an IRS tax return will be able to link to the IRS and transfer their tax return information to their FAFSA. This is a fast, easy way to apply for financial aid and will satisfy most of the student financial aid verification requirements. You may use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool during the initial filing or when subsequent corrections are made to your FAFSA.
Unfortunately, the Data Retrieval Process cannot be used in the following circumstances and you will have to submit Tax Return Transcript and W2s.
Applicants who do not use FAFSA-IRS Data Retrieval option or who retrieve IRS data but change it will be required to provide a Tax Return Transcript.
Copies of your 1040 tax returns will no longer be accepted.
