Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
You have couple of options. You can ask him if prior year return and current year income tax statements like w2 or 1099s will be acceptable as proof of income or you will have to request your return transcript. When did you filed your tax return and how did you filed? Did you e-filed or paper filed.
Ok. I still don't see you coming to this chat.
When and how you filed will affect when the transcript will be available. Since most returns are e-filed those days, transcript is widely used and acceptable proof return filing. It is also a confirmation that your return was received by IRS.
It takes about 6 weeks to process paper filed returns, and and about 3 weeks to process e-filed return. Once return is processed your transcript will become available.
You are still offline. So if this answered your question, please take a moment to rate my response so that I may receive credit for assisting you today. However, if you need clarification, or want to discuss this issue further, let me know. Thank you.

Signed paper return is also considered legal document, so if you can print your return and sign it, your broker should accept it as legal document as well.
