How did you prepare your returns? What account are you not able to access.

Expert:  Mark Taylor replied 1 year ago.

It is possible to obtain a income tax transcript of your return from the IRS.

Expert:  Mark Taylor replied 1 year ago.

The above link is to the IRS website to allow you to obtain a transcript of the tax return. You can obtain one electronically or you can request a copy to be sent by mail. Electronically will allow you to have instant access to the information. By mail it will take 5-10 days (or longer).

Expert:  Mark Taylor replied 1 year ago.

The information needed to obtain your transcript electronically is the following:

  • your SSN, date of birth, filing status and mailing address from latest tax return,
  • access to your email account,
  • your credit card number or account number from an auto loan, mortgage, home equity loan or home equity line of credit, and
  • a mobile phone with your name on the account.

By mail you would just need to provide your Social Security Number, Date of Birth, and the address you used to file the return.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions or need clarification.
