Can I get a copy of my tax return from the IRS?

SOLVEDby TurboTax9454Updated January 24, 2022

Normally, taxpayers can either request a tax return transcript or order a full copy of a previously-filed return from the IRS.

However, the IRS has suspended virtually all manual operations due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. This includes requests for copies of tax returns and mailed transcripts.

Only an online tax return transcript, which you can view, download, and print, are currently available through the IRS.

Transcripts include most line items from your return, like your AGI, and look like this. They're available for tax years 2017 through 2020 and are free.
