Getting Copy Tax Return Quickly

Getting a copy tax return is actually easier than you may have thought it would be. When you think about it, there are a variety of things that may come up that will require you to have it. It is usually a good idea to print copies of them each year and hang on to them in a file, but not everyone thinks about this. Then when you need a copy of a previous year’s return, you do not have it. Make sure that you know where to look to find the copies quickly when you need them.

Why You May Need a Copy Tax Return

The reasons that you may need a copy tax return are many. Some people need them to clear up discrepancies that they may have with the IRS. Others may need them in order to get a loan from the bank or mortgage company to buy a new house. You may also be audited by the IRS, and they may go back any number of years- so it is a good idea to have these copies on hand. Whether you want to go ahead and get the copies so that you have them if the time comes that you need them, or you just want to wait until you actually need them- you may find there are some really helpful tips that will help you to find the copy tax return quickly and easily online.

Getting the Previous Year’s Tax Return

When you need a 2010 copy tax return, you will want to simply talk to your accountant. If you do your taxes yourself online, then you can usually log in to the site that you use for electronic filing and pull up PDF files of the documents that you need. This is usually instant, and free. You simply download it and then you can print it directly from your computer. Many people use this as a way to get the tax return for the previous year. Sometimes, these databases do not keep up with the tax returns from the earlier years. This is when you may want to look for a copy tax return service.

Using Online Resources

Many people use the process of online tax return filing. There are a variety of different companies out there that make it easy for you to file online yourself- especially if you take the standard deductions. If you are familiar with using the internet to file, then it will likely be easy for you to use the web to get a copy tax return as well. You will be able to find specific instructions that will let you get the information that you need.

Talking to the IRS

The IRS is going to be your best bet when it comes to getting a copy tax return. Usually, they will get you a transcript of your taxes but depending on the year in which you need, it can take anywhere between ten and sixty days. This can be inconvenient if you need it quickly. Talk to the representative and see if there are any ways to accelerate the process and get your copy quickly. They will usually have the returns on file for the past six years- and that is generally as far back as you will ever need to go for any practical purposes. Make sure that you use these tips to help you get your copy of your tax return. It may be a good idea to go ahead and get the past six years worth of copy tax return all at once, so you don’t have to wait again.
