There are times when we as taxpayers misplace some of our important tax documents making it difficult to accurately prepare our taxes. Casualties such as a flood or fire can destroy tax documents and if there was not a data backup plan in place, recreating documents can become very time consuming. If a taxpayer finds themselves in a situation like those previously mentioned; the IRS can be a good place to begin the task or reconstruction.
If you have lost your prior year tax documents, be sure to download and fill out Form 4506-T to request copies of your prior year’s tax returns. This is a good starting point to reconstruct your data so that you and your tax professional can prepare your returns. Form 4506-T can be used to request personal, business, and payroll tax forms and the forms can be certified for court or other administrative proceedings.
