Subject: IRS Data Retrieval Process for 2009-2010 FAFSA on the Web Available on January 28, 2010

Federal Student Aid is pleased to announce we will implement the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Data Retrieval process for initial and renewal applications on the 2009-2010 FAFSA on the Web site on January 28, 2010. The IRS Data Retrieval process enables Title IV student aid applicants and parents of dependent applicants to transfer certain tax return information from an IRS Web site directly to their 2009-2010 FAFSA on the Web application.

For more information about the IRS Data Retrieval process, including a detailed description of the related functionality enhancements we will be implementing on the 2009-2010 FAFSA on the Web site, see the November 5, 2009 Electronic Announcement on the Information for Financial Aid Professionals (IFAP) Web site.
