IRS Guideline For Submitting YR 2020 IRS Tax Transcript Requests

Per the IRS IVES, year 2020 IRS 1040 tax transcript data is expected to be available the week of February 22, 2021.

January 25, 2020

Any 4506T/C request submitted prior to the availability of IRS 2020 tax transcript data will result in a “No Record” on file from the IRS. A subsequent transcript request will be required at a future date for results.

IRS Guideline
  • If a taxpayer files electronically, allow 3-4 weeks after the return submission before requesting a 2020 tax transcript.
  • If a taxpayer filed by mail, allow 6-8 weeks after the return was mailed before requesting a YR 2020 transcript.

The IRS has not communicated the availability date for YR 2020 1099 and W2 data.

Please note : The IRS will only accept the 4506-C for IRS tax transcript requests effective May 1, 2021 (rev 2/23/2021).
