Internal Revenue Service Data Retrieval Tool (IRS DRT) Is Available for the 2018‒2019 FAFSA Form. The IRS Data Retrieval Tool is available to use with the 2018–2019 FAFSA form. Additional security and privacy protections have been added to address concerns that data from the tool could be used by identity thieves to file fraudulent tax returns.
