Hi. Great Question. There are ways to obtain it. Here are your options:

  1. Contact the IRS toll free at 1-***-***-**** (call really early tomorrow morning)
  2. Complete Form 4506-T Transcript of Electronic Filing at no cost.
  3. Complete Form 4506 Copy of Income tax Return.

I will send you the link for #2.
