Since the 2017–2018 FAFSA asks for the same tax and income information as the 2016–2017 FAFSA, will my 2016–2017 FAFSA information automatically be carried over into my 2017–2018 renewal FAFSA?

No. Too much could have changed since you filed your last FAFSA, and there’s no way to predict what might be different, so you’ll need to enter the information again. However, keep in mind that many people are eligible to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool to automatically import their tax information into the FAFSA, making the process of reporting tax information quick and easy.

The IRS Data Retrieval Tool is unavailable at this time.  We are waiting for further updates from the IRS as far as availability.  Please use student/parent information from tax returns to complete the FAFSA.
