Why can’t I use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool if I filed an amended tax return?


The IRS Data Retrieval Tool allows users to link to the IRS Web site and securely transfer original IRS tax return information into their FAFSA, but not Form 1040X amended tax return information. Therefore, your IRS tax return information may not completely reflect what you need to report on the FAFSA. Remember, the Form 1040X is used to correct your original filed tax return.
