What is the difference...

What is the difference between a transcript of my 2017 tax return and a copy of my 2017 tax return?

Accountant's Assistant: The Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

My 2017 taxes were done online with TurboTax. However the copy I printed from them differs from the amount of the refund check I received yesterday.

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?

I can't think of anything unless the accountant would like the actual dollar amounts

The difference between a tax return transcript and a copy of the tax return is that the transcript is a summarized version of the actual tax return. While relevant information shows on the transcript, not all of the information from the tax return shows on the transcript. You can view a version of a tax return transcript at the following link.
