Tax professionals can now order more transcripts from the IRS


IR-2021-226, November 16, 2021

WASHINGTON – The Internal Revenue Service today announced that, effective Nov. 15, 2021, tax professionals are able to order up to 30 Transcript Delivery System (TDS) transcripts per client through the Practitioner Priority Service® line. This is an increase from the previous 10 transcripts per client limit.

"Increasing the number of transcripts a caller can receive addresses the concerns the IRS has received from PPS callers. This is another example of addressing concerns from our partners and stakeholders," said Ken Corbin, the Wage and Investment Commissioner and the IRS Taxpayer Experience Officer.

Through PPS, tax professionals can order a variety of transcripts. Practitioners can receive transcripts for up to five clients per call. There's no change to the number of clients.

Transcripts available under this newly-expanded limit include the:

  • Tax Return Transcript,
  • Tax Account Transcript,
  • Wage and Income Transcript,
  • Record of Account and
  • Verification of Non-Filing Letter.

Transcripts not listed above continue to be limited to 10 per client and count toward the total of 30 transcripts per client.

Tax professionals will continue to receive TDS transcripts in their e-Services Secure Object Repository mailboxes. The change also applies to other IRS toll-free lines.
