IRS to End Faxing and Third-Party Mailing of Tax Transcripts

Starting on June 28th 2019 the IRS will stop faxing tax transcripts (which are a mirror image of your tax return) to both taxpayers and third parties (such as your accountant). The IRS is doing this to try to prevent tax fraud. Scammers will get a hold of your transcript from prior years then use it to create a fake tax return in order to steal the refund. There are still a few simple ways to obtain your tax transcript:

1) Get your transcript online or by mail: https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript
2) Call 800-908-9946
3) Submit Form 4506-T or 4506T-EZ to have a transcript mailed.

Please consult your tax advisor on all the above information.
