IRS Form 4506-T is used to get access to financial records
When you want to get a loan, potential lenders will usually want to know your financial situation. That’s why they may ask you to fill out a blank 4506-T. By completing this document, you allow your creditor to get the required records. A common situation is when you wish to get a mortgage. With the help of this form, the person or company to whom money is owed can verify your income or even gain your tax information.
This template is also useful when completing a tax return for the Internal Revenue Service.
You may verify if you didn’t file a return in a certain year or apply for data from the following forms: 1099, 1098, 5498 or W-2.
The “T” is for a transcript. This means that your sample includes a line-by-line printout of the data from your past tax returns.
Using this document lets you receive tax information from the last three years. But if your goal is to access older information, it’s more advisable to file IRS Form 4506. Note, that filing this sample costs $50 and takes up to 75 days for delivery, while a printable 4506 T form is absolutely free and it’s most likely you'll get it by mail in no more than 3 weeks.
