Get Your IRS File
More commonly known as a Tax Account Transcript the "IRS file" is your tax paying history. All your annual tax filings, income statements, 1099's, W2's, tax credits, refunds, balances due etc. can be found on your account transcript.
Not all that long ago, access was limited to professional accountants and attorneys and accessed only when necessary; for example, when you are working on a tax controversy case or preparing for tax court. Obtaining a copy of your Tax Account Transcript is critical in analyzing the options available to resolve your tax problems. Sometimes, today's problems can be resolved with yesterdays history.
Requesting copies of your IRS file is best done by a professional who understands how to obtain them without raising any red flags as well as how to interpret the information in your file.
