 Information about the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT):

 Tax return information transferred from the IRS into fafsa.gov now has stronger security and privacy protections.

  • As a result, tax information transferred from the IRS will not be visible to the applicant and will not display on the IRS DRT web page, FAFSA form, or on the Student Aid Report.
  • Instead, students will see "Transferred from the IRS" in the appropriate fields of on fafsa.gov, the IRS DRT web page, and on their Student Aid Report.   See below for how transferred information will be displayed:
