How Do I Order Exempt Organizations Returns and Samples?

To order CDs or DVDs (other than samples), please submit Form 4506-A, Request for Public Inspection or Copy of Exempt Organization IRS Form, and the required fee.  Images are available at no cost to members of the media or other government agencies. Cost information is provided on this website for other requestors.

To order sample CDs/DVDs to determine the type of format you need, please submit Form 4506-A, and the required fee for each sample. A check or money order for the fee should be payable to "United States Treasury." On lines 5 through 7 of Form 4506-A, indicate “Sample” and the format(s) (raw and/or Alchemy) preferred next to the box for the form sample you are requesting.

The request must contain the following information:

  • Name of organization requesting CDs/DVDs and employee name (if applicable) or individual requestor's name
  • Mailing address
  • Telephone number and extension
  • UPS account number (for overnight delivery, if requested)
  • Description of specific formats being requested (e.g., "complete set of 2010 CDs/DVDs for Forms 990-PF with Alchemy").  The year you request will contain returns filed and imaged in that calendar year, regardless of the tax year of the return.

Example: A 2009 tax year return filed and imaged in 2011 will be present on the CDs/DVDs created for 2011 requests.

Mail your completed Form 4506-A and the required fee to:

Internal Revenue Service
Mail Stop 6716
Ogden, UT  84201

Requests for copies of exempt organization returns (paper or CD/DVD) are not accepted by telephone. All requests must be submitted in writing via Form 4506-A.  Incomplete requests will be rejected. File only one Form 4506-A per EIN requested.
