Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
The IRS rarely keep anything beyond 10 years. You can request a transcript of your tax forms for the past 3 years online or you can try to file 4506T it is not a guarantee that the IRS still have it.
Another way to get actual copies of your W2s (but not 1099s) is from the social security administration. It generally takes about 6 weeks to process your request and there's $86 fee for each copy unless you need the W2 for tax or benefits related purposes.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
