Do a search - they have a toll free number you can call And the copies are free (they are actually transcripts but are accepted everywhere.) Good Luck

Thread topic says it all. I need the last three years. How can I get copies? Is that even possible?

It depends on what you need. If you just need tax transcripts, then you can just easily call up the IRS 1-800 number and order them for free through their automated system. That's what I did just recently. You can order up to 10 different copies (I think that's the amount). per call. I did this about 2 weeks ago and in the past week, I found a whole wad of transcipts in my mailbox. It was pretty quick. I ordered several copies of each tax year in case I needed extra and just as a precaution so it would not delay the paperwork I intend to file.

Now, if you need the actual tax "return" copy, then that is a different story. There is a charge for each tax return copy. I originally did that once. only to later learn that tax "transcripts" would be accepted. It also took a few months to get the tax "return" copies. as opposed to the copy of the "trancripts" which took less than 2 weeks to receive.

Matt - check the I-134 and I-864 instructions specifically about self-employed individuals - that's what you are, right?

I don't know if transcripts will be enough or if you need full copies. A self-employed person may need full copies - I'm not sure - just tipping you off on what to request.

Oh God, how can I get my W2's if my ex shredded them? I have been self employed since Summer of 2004, so obviously for 1/2 of 2004 and before that I need the info.

Good grief. My case is bound to get shived in the sh!tter.

If I cannot provide certain info because my ex was a vindictive *****, then that's that. I cannot provide the info.

Can I call my ex employers and ask for copies of the old W2's?

Well you should at least have your '05 return which was filed this year. Thats a start. Surely she did not get that information as well.

No, I just mailed it in last week. But of course, last year I made no money. Nothing. I am hoping she has her interview before I am required to turn in this year's return. But I doubt it.

Had X also destroy taxes, other imp. papers including basicly everything I owned when I told her I had enough. Know exactly how you feel.
