IRS Form 4506

The Internal Revenue Service deals with all, even minor, tax-related issues. One of the most common papers an American resident will wish to file is definitely a tax return, which is submitted annually. In some cases, you may also need its official copy. To get one, you need to file IRS Form 4506.

You may request to receive the copy yourself or ask the service to deliver your paper to the designated person. Normally, it will take up to 75 days to process the completed form. However, the IRS may reject it in case you have not filled out all the lines, or the document is illegible.

We recommend using our form-building software, which will help you to create a downloadable customized paper for further filing. Make sure that all the data you are submitting is true and correct.
