Request an IRS Tax Return Transcript

You must submit an official IRS TAX RETURN TRANSCRIPT, (not an Account Transcript.) There are three ways to do this:

1) Request one electronically on the IRS website at

  • In the Tools section of the homepage, click “Get a Tax Transcript.” You can choose to get the transcript online or have it mailed to you.
  • After you select your method of delivery, then choose “Return Transcript.”

2) Call the IRS at 1-800-908-9946 and follow the prompts to request a Tax Return Transcript.

3) File Form 4506T-EZ

If you filed an Amended Return:

  • Submit the IRS Tax Return Transcript (using one of the methods listed above), AND
  • Submit a signed copy of Form 1040X showing the changes that were made to your tax return.

REMEMBER: Include your student ID number on your tax return transcript before you submit it.

NOTE: If you are applying for aid at other schools, please make a copy of your tax transcript for your records before you submit to us. We will not keep paper copies of any documents, and the IRS will currently only accommodate one request.
