Taxpayer Transcripts Can Be Requested By An IRS APP

By In Uncategorized On January 22, 2016


The IRS has encouraged taxpayers who need a transcript to obtain one online rather than by mail or telephone. The IRS has an app – “Get Transcript” – on its website.

A transcript shows most line items from the return that the taxpayer filed as well as changes made during processing, such as math error corrections. A transcript also includes items from accompanying forms and schedules filed with the return.  A transcript does not reflect any amended returns or audit adjustments to tax made after the taxpayer filed the original return.  It is a handy way to track your payments and make sure IRS has given you credit for all estimated tax payments.

Using the Get Transcript app, taxpayers can request a copy of their transcript by mail. The IRS indicated that most transcripts are mailed within five to 10 days from the time the agency receives the request online.
