Returns 3 years and under;  You can complete the online request form.
Older than 3 years; You can call the transcript hotline at 800-908-9946 to order by phone or you may complete the transcript request form # 4506

@Josh00711 

IRS Federal Tax Return transcripts are only available for the current tax year and the 3 years prior.

IRS Federal Tax Account transcripts are available for the current tax year and up to 10 prior years.

See this IRS website for transcript types - https://www.irs.gov/individuals/tax-return-transcript-types-and-ways-to-order-them

You can order a copy of a federal tax return using Form 4506.  There is a $50 fee for each tax return requested.  Copies of Forms 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ are generally available for 7 years from filing before they are destroyed by law.

The IRS only retains federal tax returns for the last 7 years.  TurboTax only retains online tax returns for the last 7 years.

Did you figure out if you could use IRS forms 4506-T to get your 2005 and 2006 tax transcripts or did you have to do something else?  Thanks for any insight you can offer.

You can only get transcripts back 5 years which also includes tax returns. If you need tax accounts you can go back 10 years. They do not keep tax returns past 5 years
