There should be a name and a phone number on the top of your letter. (Normally found on the right side of the letter,) you can call that phone number, or the IRS general phone #(###) ###-#### ***** ask for an extension of time. They will probably ask why, and you tell them that you requested a copy of your forms and you haven't received them yet.
I have NEVER seen them refuse this first extension. They will normally give you anywhere from 30-90 days.
