The Financial Aid Office encourages you to use the IRS Data Retrieval tool as the fastest and most accurate way of providing your (and your parent’s, if required) tax information.
We cannot accept copies of signed federal income tax returns in the verification process.
Therefore, MCC is strongly encouraging students and families to utilize the IRS Data Retrieval Tool while filling out their FAFSA to avoid federal verification.
If your FAFSA is selected for verification, and you don't use the IRS Data Retrieval option or you changed the IRS data, you will be required to request a tax return transcript from the IRS and submit it to the Financial Aid Office.
