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.

Please let me know if you have ANY questions at all, before rating me.

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")

I hope that you’ll rate me based on my accuracy and thoroughness, rather than any good news/bad news content.

That’s the only way JustAnswer.com will compensate me for the work here.

Thanks,

Lane
