Obama Proposes Using IRS Data to Simplify Process for Applying for College Financial Aid
The Obama Adminsistration yesterday proposed simplification of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, including allowing student applicants and their parents to directly retrieve relevant tax information from the IRS to help them complete the online FAFSA. "When you're online filling out the FAFSA, there'll be a button that says, 'Want to go get your IRS data?'" said IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman.
