The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) will be unavailable on Sunday, July 25, 2021, and Sunday, Aug. 1, 2021, from 2–4 p.m. Eastern time as the IRS completes critical system upgrades. During these outage periods, users may access the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form (website and mobile app) and the Income-Driven Repayment (IDR) Plan Request. However, if an action requires entry of federal tax information, the tax information will need to be provided manually (or, in the case of the IDR Plan Request, alternative documentation of income will need to be provided). Applicants may wish to complete the application after the outages are over.
Federal Student Aid appreciates your patience as the IRS completes these important upgrades.
