The IRS Data Retrieval Tool for FAFSA has been experiencing technical difficulties and they are not certain when services will be re-established.

If you are completing your FAFSA, you will need to manually enter your 2015 tax information.

If your FAFSA was selected for verification and you need to provide tax documents, you will need to obtain a copy of your IRS Tax Return Transcript.
