I was told by the agent I spoke with that it would take a “couple of weeks” to get the transcript back, since I’d called in with my information, and he also told me the transcript would “contain every line used on my income tax return”.
Well, it turns out that wasn’t exactly correct. First of all, it took less than a week to get back my transcript, so that was nice.
Here’s a scanned copy of the lines which they included, with our personal details blacked out:
However, it did not contain every line on my income tax return. I envisioned a printout that would contain every single numbered line from the 1040, the Schedule C’s, etc.
This will not allow me to recreate exactly what we sent to the IRS, so I decided to submit a Request for Copy of Tax Return Form 4506. This is costing me $57.00, but it is worth it to me. I am the type that worries about not having copies of important documentation like this, so it will make me feel a lot better to just pay for it.
I still need to figure out how to get a copy of our Arizona Income Tax Return.
