Letter to Education Secretary Betsy DeVos on Suspension of IRS Data Retrieval Tool

April 14, 2017

​ACE and 25 other higher education associations wrote a letter to Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos about the recent suspension of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) data retrieval tool (DRT) that makes the student financial aid application process quicker and more accurate for students and borrowers. The letter notes that the IRS and the Department of Education have announced that DRT will remain unavailable to student aid applicants and certain borrowers in repayment for the remainder of the award year, and is not expected to be operational until Oct. 1, at the earliest.​ ​​​​​
