You can request a copy of the tax return transcript for free or the actual tax return for $50 from the IRS. The tax transcript provides all of the relevant information that the tax return does, just in a different format. To request the transcript, you can call the IRS at 1-***-***-****. Typically the hold times are very long but every now and again, a person gets lucky and doesn't have to hold for an extremely long period of time. If you need the actual copy of the return, then you would complete the Form 4506 and mail it to the IRS with your check for $50. More regarding the 4506....
