Welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you.

If you need an actual copy of your tax return, they are generally available for the current tax year and as far back as six years. The fee per copy is $50. Complete and mail Form 4506 to request a copy of your tax return. Mail your request to the IRS office listed on the form for your area.

However, you can obtain a return transcript shows most line items from your tax return just as you filed it. It also includes any forms and schedules you filed with your return. This is available online.

The following link contains information about what information is available online and how to obtain it:

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb

I live in the State of Oregon. I was divorced in Nov 2016. Im in need of a tax document in order to complete my taxes for 2016. It's 1095-A form. My ex husband has the form. I'm unable to get him to provide me with a copy. I have tried to attain a copy through the Market place. This document is needed for the IRS. I can't get a copy.
