The “Link to IRS” option, so that students and parents can choose to transfer their tax and income information from the IRS database into the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), is available again for the 2019-2020 years when completing the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov. This should make it easier for applicants to transfer and enter the correct data from the correct tax year into the FAFSA.
Students and parents may still need to request a Tax Return Transcript for the appropriate tax year at www.irs.gov. For the 2019-2020 year, if an independent student or parent of a dependent student did not work or have to file taxes in tax year 2017, you will need to submit a 2017 Statement of Non-Filing Letter from the IRS if requested: this can also be obtained through the IRS website, by phone, by mail, or from a local IRS office.
If you complete your 2019-2020 FAFSA, make sure to review your “Student Aid Report” at www.fafsa.ed.gov or with the confirmation email sent to you by Federal Student Aid.
