In place of providing the Federal Tax Return Transcript, one option that may be available is the Federal IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT), which allows you to download Federal Tax information directly to the FAFSA from the IRS. Tax Data is available through the DRT option within a minimum of 2-3 weeks after electronic submission and acceptance of a Federal Tax Return to the IRS. Using this option may reduce the amount of documentation that the financial aid office needs to request.
Please note: If the IRS DRT cannot be used and if verification documentation is requested, it may be necessary to obtain an official Federal Tax Return Transcript from the IRS. Please see the instructions on how to order official transcripts above.
