ALERT - IRS May 2015:

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has announced that it's "Get Transcript" application has been compromised by as yet unknown third parties who gained unauthorized access to the application. The IRS has assured the public that their main database system that enables secure tax filing submission remains protected.The full IRS statement can be read here.

What this means for Financial Aid applicants - the IRS has shut down it's on-line "Get Transcript" application until further notice. The only way students and parents can obtain an IRS Tax Transcript is to request one by mail and this process can take up to 10 days for delivery. However, students and parents may also utilize the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT) available via FAFSA on the Web.

IRS TAX Transcripts for Victims of Identity Theft

Beginning with the 2013 tax year, tax filers who, because of IRS identity theft, are denied an IRS Tax Return Transcript using one of the regular request processes will be referred to the Identity Protection Specialized Unit (IPSU) toll-free number at 800-908-4490. Filers who believe they are victims of identity theft do not need to be referred to the IPSU; they may call the number directly or go to the ID theft website on After the IPSU authenticates the tax filer's identify, the tax filer can request that the IRS mail to the tax filer an alternate paper tax return transcript.

The alternate transcript is known as the TRDBV (Transcript DataBase View) will look different from the regular IRS Tax Return Transcript provided as a result of the standard request methods. It is, however, an official transcript that meets the Department's acceptable documentation requirement and therefore can be submitted to the school to meet verification requirements.
