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

If you used a self preparation tax software program such as TurboTax or TaxAct, you can access your account and download copies of your returns.

You cannot download a copy of your filed tax returns from the IRS.

If you need a copy of your filed and processed tax return, it costs $50 for each tax year. You should complete Form 4506, Request for Copy of Tax Return, to make the request. Mail it to the IRS address listed on the form. Copies are generally available for the current year and past six years. You should allow 75 days for delivery.

https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4506.pdf

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb

There's got to be more to it than that. They have a section on their website that is labeled Downdload your transcript. However for some stupid reason it will not let me past a certain point for 2 days now??? claiming some technical problem....for 2 day?...I can't wait the days or weeks it claims to take by the mail. I need these copies much faster than that.
Tax Professional: Barbara, Enrolled Agent replied 3 months ago

A transcript is not a copy of your actual tax return. There's a big difference.

The IRS website is known to have site issues so not being able to access information for 2 days is not unusual.

Is this service free? Ok. My question is what documentation
Ok. My question is what documentation and forms exactly do I need to send back the the IRS? I received a second notice CP2000 for tax year 2015. They are stating I underpaid my taxes by $8918. The reason is I converted a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA at the end of 2015 but then I recharacterized ALL of back to my original traditional IRA in 2/2016. I did not report this recharacterization on my 2015 1040 tax return because instructions for Form 8606 clearly stated not to include this form if you recharacterize all. However....what should I now send them? a 2015 8606 AND a 2016 8606? I have a 2015 1099-R for $27,915.20 distribution code 2 and a 2016 1099 - R for $4,860.23 distribution code R. I replied to the CP2000 letter by sending the IRS a copy of both the 2015 and 2016 1099 R explaining that the difference in $$ amount was because of lost in value between in those few months before I recharacterized it all back.. … read more
