Get Tax Transcripts from the Internal Revenue Service
Federal Requirements no longer allow us to accept Tax Forms (IRS 1040, 1040A, 1040EZ). Students/parents must provide IRS Tax Transcripts for verification along with the signed Verification Request Form for the appropriate year. The IRS must have this information in their system before you can print the transcript. Three weeks after you submit your tax return to the IRS electronically you will generally have access to the Tax Return Transcript (8 weeks if paper form submitted). A limited number of tax returns take longer for the IRS to process, such as when the return includes errors, is incomplete, needs further IRS review, or is impacted by identity theft. Questions related to processing of IRS tax return... Call 1-800-829-1040.
Note: IRS Transcript site is in high demand at this time of year.
It is suggested that you attempt to use the service during
