***If you recently filed your taxes, you may have to wait a period of time before you can request for Data Retrieval or a Tax Transcript (2 wks. if taxes filed electronically or 8 weeks if taxes filed by mail.
There are 3 options to request a Tax Transcript:
Retrieve your Tax Transcript by mail. This is the option that we recommend as it gives the fewest challenges. To obtain your Tax Transcript my mail:
- Go to irs.gov
- Click on “Get my Tax Record”
- Click on “Get Transcript by Mail” (You would think the online version is easier, but it truly isn’t)
- Fill in the information requested using the primary taxpayer (or the first person listed on your tax return). This is how it was done in the past, although it appears that this may have changed.
- Click on “Continue”
- Select “Return Transcript” for “Type of Transcript”
- Select “2016” for “Tax Year”
- Click on “Continue”
A response on the last page should say something to this effect: Get Transcript by Mail We have accepted your request for a 2016 Return Transcript. Please allow 5-10 days to receive it. The transcript will be sent to the address we have on file for you.
