FAFSA IRS Data Retrieval Tool Unavailable

March 16, 2017

The U.S. Department of Education has the following announcement on the Federal Student Aid website:

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool is unavailable at this time. We regret any inconvenience. To fill out a FAFSA, you can manually input your tax information. Remember, if you’re filling out the 2017–18 FAFSA form, your 2015 tax information is required (not 2016).

If you have concerns or questions, please contact the Grinnell College Office of Financial Aid at 641-269-3250 or email finaid@grinnell.edu.
