You can get a transcript by mail to view your tax account transactions or line-by-line tax return information for a specific tax year. The method you used to file your return and whether you have a refund or balance due, affects your current year transcript availability. Note: If you need a copy of your return, you must use Form 4506, Request for Copy of Return.
The IRS never sends email requesting that you obtain or access your transcripts. If you receive such an email, please forward it to our fraud group at email@example.com.
