Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

If you are an executor or personal representative of his estate you can call the IRS and request a transcript. If you want copy of an actual return you can request it as well for a $50.

I cant call you right now but I log back in tomorrow how can I get in contact. Search your user name?

I do not have access to IRS information. You will need to file form 4506: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4506.pdf

You will have to sign it as representative or if his wife is still alive she can sign it as surviving spouse.
