Steps to Request a Federal Tax Return Transcript

Tax filers can request a tax return transcript, free of charge, from the IRS in one of three ways;  online request, by phone or by completing a Form 4506-T.

 

  1. Online Request
    • IRS Web site at www.irs.gov
    • Under Tools Click +More
    • In the Online Services section of the homepage click “Order a Tax Return or Account Transcript”
    • Click “Order a Transcript”
    • Enter the tax filer’s Social Security Number, date of birth, street address, and zip or postal code.Use the address currently on file with the IRS. Generally this will be the address that was listed on the latest tax return filed. However, if an address change has been completed through the US Postal Service, the IRS may have the updated address on file.
    • Click “Continue”
    • In the Type of Transcript field, select “Tax Return Transcript” and in the Tax Year field, select “year” required with FAFSA you are submitting.
    • If successfully validated, tax filer can expect to receive a paper IRS Tax Return Transcript at the address included in their online request, within 5 to 10 days from the time the online request was successfully transmitted to the IRS.
    • **IRS Tax Return Transcripts requested online cannot be sent directly to a third party by the IRS.**


    • Submit the tax return transcript to Glen Oaks Community College; make sure to include the student’s name and ID# on the transcript.
  2. Telephone Request
    • Contact the IRS by calling 1-800-908-9946
    • Tax filers must follow prompts to enter their social security number and the numbers in their street address. Generally this will be numbers of the street address that was listed on the latest tax return filed. However, if an address change has been completed through the US Postal Service, the IRS may have the updated address on file.
    • Select “Option 2” to request an IRS Tax Transcript and then enter “year” required with FAFSA you are submitting.
    • If successfully validated, tax filer can expect to receive a paper IRS Tax Return Transcript at the address that was used in their telephone request, within 5 to 10 days from the time the IRS receives the request.
    • IRS Tax Return Transcripts requested by telephone cannot be sent directly to a third party by the IRS.
    • Submit the tax return transcript to Glen Oaks Community College; make sure to include the student’s name and ID# on the transcript.


  3. Paper Request Form – IRS From 4506-T
    • IRS Form 4506-T should be used to request an IRS Tax Return Transcript.
    • Download at http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4506t.pdf
    • Complete lines 1-4, following the instructions on page 2 of the form.
    • Note that line 3 should be the most current address as filed with the IRS. It is the address where the IRS Tax Return Transcript will be sent. If the address has recently changed, include the address listed on the latest tax return filed on line 4. However, if an address change has been completed through the US Postal Service, the IRS may have the updated address on file.
    • Line 5 provides tax filers with the option to have their IRS Tax Return Transcript mailed directly to a third party by the IRS. Glen Oaks Community College should not receive it directly from the IRS because we require the students name and ID# on the transcript.
    • On line 6, enter “year” to receive IRS tax information for the tax year that is required for the FAFSA you are submitting.
    • The tax filers (or spouse if requesting information from a joint tax return) must sign and date the form and enter their telephone number. Only one signature is required to request a transcript for a joint return.
    • Mail or fax the completed IRS From 4506-T to the appropriate address (or FAX number) provided on page 2 of Form 4506-T.
    • Tax filers can expect to receive their transcript within 5 to 10- days from the time the IRS received and processes their signed request. NOTE: Processing from 4506-T means verifying/validating the information provided on the form. If any information does not match the IRS records, the IRS will notify the tax filer that it was not able to provide the transcript.
    • Submit the tax return transcript to Glen Oaks Community College; make sure to include the student’s name and ID# on the transcript.
