Due to security concerns, the IRS has disabled the Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) until approximately October, 2017. If you are selected for FAFSA verification, do not delay obtaining your IRS tax information.


Order Your Tax Return Transcript Online Or By Phone.

You will need your social security number, date of birth, and the address on file with the IRS. Make sure to request the IRS Tax Return Transcript and not the IRS Tax Account Transcript. The tax return transcript is a summary of the line items processed by the IRS.


To request your IRS Tax Return Transcript online, go to IRS.gov.

  • Select Get Transcript Online or Get Transcript by Mail.
  • After entering your personal information, select Tax Return Transcript and the 2015 Tax Year.

  • To request your IRS Tax Return Transcript by phone, call 800-908-9946.


    Provide a copy of the Tax Return Transcript (if we are requesting your tax data) along with any additional verification documents to the financial aid office as soon as possible to complete the verification process. Additional help is available via our IRS Tax Data Instructions page.
