Tax Transcript

For most students, IRS data can be imported directly into the FAFSA using the IRS Data Retrieval tool. This is the preferred method to confirm IRS data for financial aid purposes as it is fast, secure, and easy. For a helpful video on this process, please view the Financial Aid Tutorials

Alternatively, students selected for verification can request a Tax Transcript from the IRS website.
