In relation to your original question.
There is no other way - but to get your information from the IRS.
The IRS doesn't provide online access to your tax information.
That may be done by
-- calling the IRS help line 1_800_829_1040_ ,
-- visiting a local IRS office, or
-- ordering the tax account transcript for 2008.
If you are looking for tax information for previous years - you may order transcripts from the IRS.
You need to use the form www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4506t.pdf to obtain your tax account transcript.
On the form - check the box 8 for information about W2, 1099, 1098 forms.
Also - check the box 6(b) for adjustment made by the IRS.
You have three easy and convenient options for getting copies of your federal tax return information -- tax account transcripts--by phone, by mail, or online.
Our new online ordering method, Order A Transcript - http://../individuals/article/0,,id=232168,00.html , is available and makes ordering simple.
You may also request transcripts by calling _1_800_908_9946_, or order by mail using IRS Form 4506T (Request for Transcript of Tax Return).
There is no fee for transcripts. Allow five to ten days for delivery if you order online or by phone.
If you need to resolve a tax problem, have questions about how the tax law applies to your individual tax return, or you're more comfortable talking with someone face-to-face, visit your local Taxpayer Assistance Center where you can spread out your records and talk with an IRS representative across the counter. No appointment is necessary - just walk in.
Here are locations in Pennsylvania - http://www.irs.gov/localcontacts/article/0,,id=98326,00.html
