Updating a filed fafsa
The FAFSA application will allow you to make changes after you have completed verification.
However, Rollins cannot utilize those changes once verification is complete. Department of Education has partnered with the IRS to allow applicants to utilize the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) to import your tax return information directly from the IRS onto your FAFSA.
If you have extenuating circumstances, please review contact our office. What is an IRS Data Retrieval Tool and should I use it when completing the FAFSA? The DRT makes completing the FAFSA easier and more accurate, and it also allows selected students to complete the verification process more quickly.
You will be prompted to select this option when completing the FAFSA if you are eligible. You will be able to utilize the IRS Data Retrieval Tool which will enable you to complete the FAFSA more easily and accurately. What if I cannot complete my tax returns before the priority filing deadline? However, once your federal tax returns are submitted, access your FAFSA and then utilize the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to ensure your information is correct. What is a tax return transcript and why do I need one? Department of Education will only accept official tax return transcripts from the IRS to verify financial information on the FAFSA. You should estimate your income information on the FAFSA. Am I required to go through the verification process? You will indicate that you didn't file on the Verification Worksheet (will be available in mid-January) and complete the income information.
Please note: Each FSA ID user must have a unique e-mail address. Errors must be corrected and sent to the Federal Processor. There will be a notification on your Student Aid Report (SAR), which you automatically receive after submitting the FAFSA. Students can be randomly selected for verification by the Federal Processor when the FAFSA is submitted or when any subsequent changes are made.
