The IRS Data Retrieval Tool that allows students and parents to transfer tax data directly from the IRS to the FAFSA is unavailable for the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 FAFSAs. If you have not yet filed a FAFSA, you will need to manually enter tax and income information from your 2015 tax return. If you do not have access to your 2015 tax return you may order a tax transcript from the IRS. Information on how to order a transcript is available here: umaine.edu/stuaid/irs-tax-transcript-instructions.
If you already filed a 2017-2018 FAFSA and were selected for verification, check your MaineStreet To Do list for updated information requests.
