Applicants will use tax information from income earned two years earlier, instead of last year'’s income. The change eliminates the guesswork of estimating your tax information when you complete your FAFSA prior to completing your taxes.

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool, which eliminates the need for you to have your tax documents on hand by electronically transferring your tax return information from the IRS to your FAFSA, will also be available to most applicants.
