At one point my wife was able to request our 2011 tax transcript

This answer was rated:

At one point my wife was able to request our 2011 tax transcript online and then today she can't. I spoke with a tax advocate and she said our 2011 wasn't processed yet. I thought they were since she could request them. I need them immediately because I'm trying to buy a house. does anyone know of a quick way for me to get my tax transcripts. The sellers going to pull out soon and I'm living in hotels due to this issue.

MyVirtualCPA :

Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer.com

MyVirtualCPA :

How are you today?

Customer:

depressed

MyVirtualCPA :

Please don't shoot the messenger, but there is no way to be able to get your transcripts immediately. The requests do take a few days to process and if your return has not been processed by the IRS there's no way to expedite the process

Customer:

how could it change from being able to make the request to not able to make the request.

MyVirtualCPA :

I'm truly sorry and I wish I had better news for you

MyVirtualCPA :

I'm not sure. You would have to call 1-800-829-1040 and speak with a representative about your individual account

Customer:

once they are processed on their server do you know of anyone I can contact to get them. i heard some tax attorneys and banks can do this

MyVirtualCPA :

All that banks and tax attorneys do is take your form 4506-T and send in the same request that you would send on your own

MyVirtualCPA :

There's nothing special that they do

Customer:

I saw an answer on this form were there were some people who had the software to pull it directly from the irs server

Customer:

that's what i'm trying to find right now

MyVirtualCPA :

You mean a service such as Proof of Tax?

MyVirtualCPA :

http://www.proofoftax.com/

Customer:

i never heard of them thanx

Customer:

do they count since its a tax return vs. tax transcript

MyVirtualCPA :

it won't count for the purpose of a bank...they will still want your transcript straight from the IRS

MyVirtualCPA :

but it would at least give them something immediately

Customer:

I went to irs office and they gave me stamped tax return and the underwritters rejected it

Customer:

some expert on your forum knows of people who can pull directly from irs server

Customer:

can you find this out for me?

MyVirtualCPA :

Yes, it's called proof of tax. www.proofoftax.com

Customer:

but it's not tax transcript as we discussed beacause I think my tax transcript maybe out there

MyVirtualCPA :

The tax transcript that they need has to come directly from the IRS

Customer:

ok, thank you for your help. if you know of tax of advocate who could help me or tax attorneys in massachussets who could help me let me know.

MyVirtualCPA :

I'm sorry, but attorneys can't get this information any faster either. If you call 1-800-829-1040 you can order a transcript and have it in about 10 days, provided your return is processed

Customer:

you can mark this answered but I want a post question to get a hold of people with software to get tax transcript directly from IRS. An expert on your forum said this is possible. My realator also said so.

MyVirtualCPA :

Okay if you would, please rate my response as "excellent" so that I may receive credit for assisting you today

Customer:

ok

MyVirtualCPA :

Thanks so much!

Customer:

can u post for me rephrasing my question for your experts

MyVirtualCPA :

You would need to post a new question.
