The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) will be unavailable on Friday, Oct. 23, 2020, from 1–5 a.m. Eastern time as the IRS completes critical system upgrades. During this outage period, users may access fafsa.gov, the myStudentAid mobile app, and the Income-Driven Repayment (IDR) Plan Request. However, if an action requires entry of federal tax information, the tax information will need to be provided manually (or, in the case of the IDR Plan Request, alternative documentation of income will need to be provided). Applicants may wish to complete the application after the outage is over.

We apologize for the inconvenience this outage may cause and appreciate your patience as the IRS completes these important upgrades.
