    @doublebach great to hear the DRT is up and running...but why would you be uploading your 2016 tax return? That will be used for the 2018-2019 FAFSA, which won't become available for filing until October 2017.

    @kelsmom is the DRT really working again??

    And if you verified your 2015 income with the DRT, why would you need a transcript as well?

    ITs been back up for at least a month, IIRC

    The DRT is down until 2018-2019 FAFSA. This is the message you will see if you go to www.fafsa.ed.gov:
    The IRS Data Retrieval Tool is unavailable at this time and will remain unavailable until the start of the next FAFSA season. We regret any inconvenience.
