Get Your IRS Tax File
You can get a record of your past tax returns, also referred to as transcripts, from the IRS. IRS transcripts are often used to validate income and tax filing status for mortgage applications, student and small business loan applications, and during tax preparation. We generally request information from the IRS for our Clients so we know what information the IRS has on file before we prepare a tax relief case. There are several types of requests that can be made.
Tax Return Transcripts show most line items from your tax return (Form 1040, 1040A or 1040EZ) as it was originally filed, including any accompanying forms and schedules. This transcript does not reflect any changes you, your representative or the IRS made after you filed your return. In many cases, a Return Transcript will meet the requirements of lending institutions offering mortgages and student loans.
Tax Account Transcripts provide any adjustments either you or the IRS made after you filed your return. This transcript shows basic data, including marital status, type of return filed, adjusted gross income and taxable income.
Record of Account Transcripts combine the information from tax account and tax return transcripts.
Wage and Income Transcripts show data from information returns, such as W-2s, 1099s and 1098s, reported to the IRS. Most recent year information may not be complete until July.
Verification of Nonfiling Letters are proof from the IRS that you did not file a return this year. Current year requests are only available after June 15. A taxpayer may fail to file a tax return even though he/she has a filing requirement. This letter does not address whether or not the taxpayer should have filed a tax return.
We handle these requests on behalf of our Clients so we know what the IRS has on file. Call us today!
