Reasons You May Need a Copy Tax Return

There are so many different reasons out there that you may need a copy tax return. When you file your taxes each year, you should print the return and file it for safe keeping. Most people choose to file them on a computer as a PDF file, or in a filing cabinet with all of their other important documents. If you have not been keeping up with copies of your past tax returns, then you will want to start doing so immediately. In fact, if you have filed your 2011 tax return and did not keep a copy, see if you can obtain it through your accountant or your online tax filing service. Take a look at some of these common reasons that you may need a copy of the return in the future.

Keeping Good Records

The first reason that people need to get a copy tax return is because they have lost theirs. If you are generally good at keeping up with records, but you simply misplaced it- then you may want to get a copy to ensure that your records are complete. It is a general rule of thumb that you keep up with the information for at least 6 years. Each year, you can go through and clean out your files and shred the copies that are older than 6 years old. This helps to ensure that you have enough room to continue filing your returns for your record.

Citizenship Requirements

Another big reason that people have to request a copy tax return is because they need to have it in order to complete the citizenship requirements. Immigrants for other countries that want to become US citizens will need to have these documents prepared to show in the event that they are requested. Generally, you can either use a transcript of the tax return of you can just bring in an actual copy.

Getting a New Loan

There are many different loans out there- from personal loans to student loans. If you want to get a new loan, the bank may ask for your previous years tax return to ensure that you make enough money to be able to pay back the loan. This is true of many different types of loans- including home mortgages and lease agreements. Whether you want to go back to school, or you just want to find a way to buy a new home- you may need a copy tax return. Make sure that you have the copies when you need them so that it does not delay the loan process.

Refinancing Your Home

Another common life event that comes up that will require a copy tax return is a home loan refinance. When your lender tells you that you are eligible to refinance, you may want to take advantage of this offer. It can usually lower your interest rates and lower your mortgage payments. It may even allow you to do some updates to the home. When you do this, the lender will likely want to see the past tax return copies to ensure that you are still making the money that you will need to continue to pay the loan on the home- even if it is going to be lowered.

Completing the Copy Tax Return Form (Form 4506T-EZ)

The form that you will need is called the Form 4506T-EZ, and you can generally find a printable version online. You will need to fill it out completely in order to receive a copy tax return from the IRS.
