Hi. My name's Lane.

...

I hold a law degree (J.D.), with concentration in Tax Law, Estate law & Corporate law, an MBA in finance, a BBA, and CFP & CRPS (Chartered Retirement Plans Specialist) designations, as well - I’ve been providing financial, Social Security/Medicare, estate, corporate, non-profit, and tax advice on three continents since 1986.

Bear with me a moment and I’ll provide my initial response, and then we can go from there if you have further questions on this

Ask Your Own Tax Question

Yes, you can get a certain version of the tax transcript (called the ACCOUNT transcript) that will show that an extension was filed.

...

See this from the IRM (IRS' Internal Revenue Manual):

...

"Tax Account Transcript ... is ordered when the taxpayer wants an account history. Some reasons may include ... Verification of extension".
https://www.irs.gov/irm/part21/irm_21-002-003r.html

...

You can use form 4506-T: https://www.irs.gov/uac/about-form-4506t

...

Or use the "Get Transcript" tool here: https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript

...

Be SURE, when you are choosing the TYPE of transcript, to choose ACCOUNT transcript.

If this has helped, and you DON’T have other questions … I'd appreciate a positive rating (using the stars or faces on your screen, and then clicking “submit")

Thanks,

Lane
