1) ask her for a copy or access

2) get your lawyer to require her to provide one

3) get a transcript from the IRS

4) pay the IRS for a copy

 

Go to this IRS website for free federal tax return transcripts - https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript

 

For a fee of $50 you can get a complete federal tax return from the IRS by completing Form 4506 - http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4506.pdf

did she get your approval to file the joint return?

  1. An individual may not file a joint tax return without the consent of the marital partner.
  2. Filing a joint tax return without the consent of the marital partner is a crime.
  3. Similarly, signing your name on the return without your consent is considered forgery, which is also a crime.
  4. If a joint return was filed without your consent, the IRS will automatically deem the non-consensual joint tax return to be fraudulent.
  5. If the IRS decides that your spouse filed the joint return intentionally and without your consent, he may face hefty financial penalties.
  6. In addition, if the IRS decides that your spouse filed the joint return intentionally and without your consent, your spouse may have to go to jail.
  7. If the non-consensual return is filed during a divorce proceeding, you may be entitled to relief from the family court in Oklahoma City or other courts that is handling your case.

 

if you're allowed, contact her, and let her know she could be in big trouble.  that may get you what you want. 

if not you can file form 3949-A with the IRS for fraudulent activities.  you may have to prove she did not get your consent because filing this form without justification will cause you big problems
