Before the days when the IRS system was hacked, you could get the information immediately, but now you can still gothere and ORDER the transcripts and they say (pasted FROM that page)

  • Transcripts arrive in 5 to 10 calendar days at the address we have on file for you

This is the only way to get that information on the IRS site.

...

To request a transcript by telephone, call the IRS at 1-***-***-**** and follow the prompts in the recorded message.

Tax return transcripts are free. After the IRS has processed a return, transcripts are available for the current tax year and the past three tax years.

...

Actual copies of your tax returns are generally available for the current tax year and as far back as six years. The fee for each copy you order is $57. To request a copy of your tax return, complete Form 4506; https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4506.pdf
