Tuition is expensive and every penny saved counts. Every financial aid application requires that families input their tax information. The Internal Revenue Service is helping to streamline the process with increased accuracy with the IRS retrieval tool. This tool plugs into to your federal tax return information and uses it to complete the financial portion of your fafsa form, saving time and improving accuracy. This method will reduce the verifications needed from the school and will reduce the likelihood of being selected for federal verification.
While some people choose to input financial information manually, the IRS retrieval tool will automatically transfer the information on your tax return to your financial aid form with less chance of error. At Ducerus, we are familiar with the IRS Data Retrieval Tool and can help you navigate it.
