Trying to get tax return transcript, but it says wrong address?

Asked by: samserio 2248 views YA Discussion

I’ve been trying to get a tax return transcript online and over the phone, but it says my house address is wrong. However, it is the address I used when I filed my income tax. I really need to get this tax return transcript for school, but have had no luck. Anyone have any idea why it is doing this?

    It could be a wrong zip or house number. Pull out your copy of your tax return and look at it. You can go to the IRS office and get one.

    It is doing it because you are using the telephone and trying to do it online. You need to request it by mail, in an envelope, with the proper postage, without using the phone or the Internet.

    The retrieval tool is incredibly picky on addresses. Addresses are autocorrected through a post office program and may not match what you put on the tax return.

    So go to the nearest IRS office with ID (wait in line) or call 1-800-829-1040 and ask for it to be mailed to you (wait on line for an hour, mail takes 5-10 days) or call and stand next to a fax machine and beg for it to be faxed to you.
