There are several types of transcripts.

Tax Account Transcript - shows basic data including return type, marital status, adjusted gross income, taxable income, credits and payments. It also shows adjustments made by you or the IRS after you filed the return.

.The problem that you you will not be able to required his transcripts regardless of the court order. The IRS will not accept the court order. To accomplish that - there are several ways.1.Transcripts are requested by your ex-spouse and requested to be mailed to the third party - either to the court or directly to you.2.Your ex-spouse signs the IRS POA form authorizing you to request transcripts on his behalf..If your ex-spouse disagrees with either - you would need to take him back to the court and have the judge requesting transcripts.
