How do we replace? We lost all of our tax documents for 2018 in a house fire and we need to file. I don’t know everything that we had. How do we get the documents back?

You can contact all the issuers of the tax reporting forms for replacements  OR   get an income transcript from the IRS for each of you ...  https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript

The documents you need to prepare your tax return come from a wide variety of issuers, and it will be hard to gather all of them together again after such an unfortunate event as a fire.  So sorry.

 

Here is a checklist of documents you may need to replace from the sources that issued them:
