Tax Transcripts

32 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this question has been asked before but I couldn't find anything pertaining to this exactly. I ordered my tax transcripts for the past 3 years from IRS.gov and it said 5-10 business days. Well it's been over 2 weeks and I've yet to receive them so I decided to just download them from their site. I notice on the top of them, (I guess for safety reasons) it only lists; the last 4 of my SSN, the first 4 letters of my last name (no first name at all) and  my house # and first 3 letters of my street address. Will NVC accept this? I mean, will they use common sense and match all the info I've provided them with to this and see these transcripts clearly belong to me? Or are there transcripts out there that show full information on them? Anyone? 

 

Thank you in advance.

If these transcripts were downloaded from the IRS websites, they yes, they will accept them.

https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-get-tax-transcripts-and-copies-of-tax-returns-from-the-irs

 

$50 a copy

free if u walk into any IRS office with SS card and photo ID

 

$50 a piece for 3 is $150

that is a lot of gas money to get to nearest IRS office

The website states

"Those who need an actual copy of a tax return can get one for the current tax year and as far back as six years. The fee per copy is $50."

I only needed transcripts as I've read from other VJ members those are better and simpler to provide to the NVC. Those are free. I didn't have to pay when I requested to have them sent by mail (which I've still not received as of yesterday) nor did I have to pay online last night when I ended up downloading them to my phone.

My husband's cell didn't work either, but we did manage a convoluted way around it. They sent whatever code via snailmail instead of txt, and we got into the IRS account that way.

TRANSCRIPTS are FREE regardless of if you obtain them off the website or go into an office. Full copies are not (that would be time and money photocopying on their staff's part).

So that brings up another question; on the website, it had a drop down menu where it asks me to select a reason I needed the transcripts. "Immigration" was one of the reasons but I didn't choose that, I just selected "Income verification". Do you know if this selection makes the transcript come out looking a different way ? Because the ones I downloaded and printed look like something I could've just typed up in Microsoft Word. It has the big IRS treasury heading and whatnot at the top but it still looks like I could've made this document myself. Is there some official seal/stamp that needs to be on these things or what?

Its possible, we certainly selected the right reason for needing the document which was immigration purposes. I don't remember offhand seeing anything redacted on the document either.
