IRS Data Retrieval Tool

Return to Step-by-Step Financial Aid Process

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool is Temporarily Unavailable

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) allows students and parents to conveniently transfer tax information directly to the FAFSA from the IRS. The IRS has recently suspended this service due to concerns of identity theft. The IRS and the Department of Education are working to resolve the issue. MCC will provide updates as we receive new information.

During this time the FAFSA is still available! Students and parents will be required to manually input their tax data onto the FAFSA using information from their tax returns.

As always, Financial Aid staff are available Monday- Friday from 10:00am- 4:00pm at the Financial Aid Kiosk located on the lower level of Pra hl to assist students in completing their FAFSA’s. Students will need to bring their tax returns with them in order to successfully complete this process.

As a reminder, students who are selected for verification by the Department of Education will be required to submit a tax return transcript to the Financial Aid Office. These can be ordered online by visiting the IRS website (

Please call or visit our office if you have questions.
