Faxing of Tax Transcripts Ends June 28

Starting June 28, 2019, the IRS will stop faxing tax transcripts to both taxpayers and third parties, including tax professionals. This action affects individual and business transcripts.


Tax transcripts are summaries of tax return information. Transcripts have become increasingly vulnerable as criminals impersonate taxpayers or authorized third parties. Identity thieves use tax transcripts to file fraudulent returns for refunds that are difficult to detect because they mirror a legitimate tax return.


Individual taxpayers have several options to obtain a tax transcript. They may: ● Use IRS.gov or the IRS2Go app to access "Get Transcript Online" (after verifying their identities, taxpayers may immediately download or print their transcript) or "Get Transcript by Mail" (transcript will be delivered within 10 days to the address of record) ● Call 800-908-9946 for an automated Get Transcript by Mail feature ● Submit Form 4506-T or 4506T-EZ to have a transcript mailed to the address of record. (On July 1, 2019 the forms will be amended to remove the option for mailing to a third-party)
