The new 2018-2019 FAFSA (including the ready-to-use IRS Data Retrieval Tool) is here! You can submit a FAFSA application as early as October 1 - three months earlier than ever before. All students, new and returning - can use prior year (PY) tax information when reporting personal and family income.
What does this mean for you if you plan to attend OCtech August 2018-July 2019?
When completing the 2018-2019 FAFSA you will use your 2016 taxes. Because you will be using your 2016 income information, there is a greater chance that you can use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT). The DRT allows you to transfer your official IRS tax information into the FAFSA, reducing errors and speeding up completion time.
