There are 2 different forms , which may be causing a little confusion.
Form 4506 asks the IRS for a copy of your previously filed tax return as you sent it to them and carries a $57 fee associated with it. This may take up to 60 days because they are looking for your 2008 already filed tax return.
I am opertating under the assumption that you never filed your 2008 tax return because you couldn't get the K1 with which to file it. In that case, you only need to Form 4506T.
Form 4506 T asks for a transcript only. This is free, and normally takes 7-10 days. I understand you need it by Wed. If you are willing to sign the POA Form 2848.
, and you are either at the trustee's office or a local
CPA or H&R Block, IRS will sometimes fax that transcript while you wait. This would allow you to have your tax return done from the transcript also. I have often prepared tax returns
from these transcripts, and they really are no different than preparing one where you bring in your original documents, (W2's, bank interest
, etc) Under this scenario, it is possible to get your tax return completed by Wed, but there are alot of variables here, and each one needs to fall into place. I know its possible because I've done this within this type of time restraint, but it is by no means guaranteed. However, it is by far your best option considering the time frame you have.
I hope this helps.
