Even if you have not completed your current year Federal Tax Returns, you should complete your FAFSA using tax estimates.
Once current year Federal Income Tax Returns are filed, you can use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to update the FAFSA by logging back onto your FAFSA using your FSA ID. Students will use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool for the student financial Information section and parents of dependent students will use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool for the parent financial information section. If you are not eligible to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, you will need to submit and official IRS Tax Return Transcript to our office.
Current year IRS transcript availability can be found on the IRS website. The estimated time frames when taxes will be available are based on the method used to file your return and whether you have a refund or or balance due.
