Q5: What boxes should be marked on the 4506-C form for a 1040 product?

If 1040 is on line 6 of the form then box A, or B or C should be checked on the form. Box A is for regular Transcripts, Box B is for Account Transcript, and Box C is for Record of Account. Note: Marking multiple boxes could result in an NCS reject or multiple charges from the IRS. See below.

Here is the Order Detail to match the statement above and where you select the appropriate Box A, or B, or C.  If you want, Account Transcript, or Record of Account use the dropdown and select the appropriate transcript type.

Q6: Can a 1040 product and a wage and income product be ordered on the same form? 

Yes, with exceptions.

Note: The IRS will return ALL transcripts for taxpayers listed on line 1a and 2a. If you want all forms (wage and income) for each taxpayer, then each taxpayer needs to be input in the order details. If only one taxpayer is listed in the order detail this indicates your order is for that taxpayer only and only one name should appear on the 4506-C form.

Q7:  How should the form be filled out for only a W2 or 1099 request?

List the form type you are requesting on line 6 and only mark box 7 on the 4506-C form. Reminder: Wage and Income forms are for individual taxpayers only.  If you have two taxpayers, then the forms returned will be for EACH taxpayer and the taxpayers must be input in the order detail. See below.
