Q) I have tried to get my 2018 tax return transcript online but its saying no tax return available, i already filed it in April 15th 2019 and its only showing that a extension was filed. It was mailed off and its already the 8th week. What should I do?
A) There are a few things you can do if you are unable to get your 2018 tax return transcript online.
- Check your mail. It is possible that the IRS has not yet processed your return. If you filed your return by mail, it can take up to 16 weeks for the IRS to process it. You can check your mail for a letter from the IRS that will confirm that they have received your return.
- Request a transcript by mail. If you are unable to find your return in the mail, you can request a transcript by mail. To do this, you will need to fill out Form 4506-T and mail it to the IRS. The IRS will send you a transcript of your return within 5 business days.
- Contact the IRS. If you have still not been able to get your 2018 tax return transcript, you can contact the IRS. You can call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040 or visit their website at www.irs.gov. When you contact the IRS, you will need to provide your name, Social Security number, and the date you filed your return. The IRS will be able to help you get your transcript.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
