To do so, go to FAFSA, log in to the student’s FAFSA record, select “Make FAFSA Corrections,” and select the tab across the top of the FAFSA called Financial Information. From there, follow the instructions to transfer the tax data directly from the IRS into the student’s FAFSA.
The corrections will not be processed unless you go to the end and sign your FAFSA electronically using your FSA ID. At least one parent also has to sign with his/her FSA ID for dependent students.
In most cases, no further documentation is needed to verify IRS income tax return information that was transferred into the student’s FAFSA using the IRS DRT if that information was not changed. For the retrieved data to be acceptable documentation of tax data, neither students nor parents may change the data after it’s transferred from the IRS.
In most cases, for electronic filers, IRS income tax return information for the IRS DRT is available within 2 – 3 weeks after the electronic IRS income tax return has been accepted by the IRS. Generally, for filers of paper IRS income tax returns, the IRS income tax return information is available for the IRS DRT within 8 – 11 weeks after the paper IRS income tax return has been received by the IRS.
