How do I get my tax transcripts?
If you need a copy of a tax return from past years, go to the IRS Get Transcript page. You can order a tax transcript to arrive in the mail by providing your Social Security Number, birthdate and mailing address. Transcripts are delivered to the address the IRS has on file for you, usually within 5 to 10 days.
You can also get your transcripts online, but it requires some additional personal information for verification, including a financial account number from a loan service (like a credit card or car loan) and a mobile phone number.
