IRS Data Retrieval
The IRS Date Retrieval Tool (DRT) is available when you file the FAFSA. Using this tool is the easiest and most accurate way to file the FAFSA.
If you choose not to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool, you will need to have tax returns and other records of other income available when you complete the FAFSA. If your FAFSA is selected for verification you may be asked to supply a copy of your IRS tax transcript. A tax transcript can be obtained online at irs.gov/transcript.
Parental data is not required on the FAFSA
Medical students are not required to provide parental data on the FAFSA. Only students who wish to apply for the Primary Care Loans and Loans to Disadvantaged Students need to provide parental data to be considered for these need-based loans. Medical students will be considered for need-based scholarships without providing parental tax information.
