Original Expert here...

Note that while you can request the transcript online, you may want to think about it before doing so. I say this because for a while, the online request transcript tool was not active due to it being hacked and many taxpayers info being stolen. SEE BELOW:

----------------------------------

The Internal Revenue Service has reinstated its Get Transcript service, more than a year after hackers managed to manipulate settings in the system in order to steal information on more than 720,000 U.S. taxpayers.

The IRS suspended the service – which gives citizens a way to look up line-by-line tax return, wage and income information for a given year – last May after it was discovered attackers had been accessing sensitive information via the platform. From February 2015 to May 2015 attackers were able to use personal information, such as individuals’ Social Security numbers, dates of birth, and tax filing statuses, to beat the service’s security checks.
