So......there is only 2 ways to get a COPY of your 2008 Tax Return Information

1- To call a Tax attorney, and pay for them to inquire the IRS for the Tax Return.

2- Contact the IRS directly yourself, and submit your idebtifying information (to verify the person requesting the tax return is the same as whos tax return is belongs to)


Other than that..........theres no other way.


Oh wait......there is another way.....but its not really a sure way......its just a possible place your return is stored.

If you use Turbo Tax or any other Tax account software, and you have been using the same account on the software SINCE 2008, that software will still have your retuyrn information stored ONLINE.


For example.......say you filed your 2008 return using Turbo Tax. They keep your retunr information for i think 10 years, stored online in your account.

So when y ou login to turbotax today, you could go back to your previous returns and view them.

But That is a long most dont have or use the same tax account for that long.


So......what did you use to file in 2008?

Did you go to a place and have them done, like HandR Block?

or did you file them yourself using online Tax return software?
