Hi and welcome to JA. I am sorry you have had to go through this and your loss.
You can try a couple of things.You can contract your prior employers to get your prior W-2s. You can also try to order the actual prior returns here.It is possible you got bad information from IRS , seek the actual returns.
Form 4506 (Request for Copy of Tax Return) or Form 4506 here not a transcript.
Also if you used a tax preparer they may have saved a copy of the returns.
You may offer the W-2s and see if they would suffice or any communication you get from IRS..
I appreciate the chance to help you tonight.I hope some of this may help you.Please let me know if you have more follow up.
Were you able to get old W-2s from employer.
And are you telling me you ordered the actual old returns they are different than the transcripts and they may have the returns but not the transcripts.
Or tried to order the actual returns..
