Hello. Thank you for choosing this Q&A service for assistance. My name is***** will be assisting you. You will not be able to retrieve your tax returns that far bar from the IRS, however, you can request a record of your earnings from the social security office, which will provide the information that you seek. However, unless it is a social security agency related matter, they will charge you for the information. I will provide you with more information in the next thread.
