YesU encourages the use of the Data Retrieval Tool (DRT), a website that can transfer your income from the IRS when filing your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). As of 3/10, this system will be unavailable indefinitely. Please file your FAFSA anyway and use the income from your and your family’s 2015 federal tax return. If you don’t have a copy of that form, you can get an online transcript of what you filed here: https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript. You also may use Get Transcript by Mail or call 1-800-908-9946 and a transcript will be delivered to your address of record within five to 10 days.
Don’t delay filing. We don’t know when the IRS will re-instate the DRT. But, don’t worry – YesU has you covered! We will let you know when this tool is back up and working. Notice image
