4506-T Taxpayer Questions

What is the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Form 4506-T?

The 4506-T is an IRS document used by you, the taxpayer giving the IRS permission to release your tax returns information to the entity listed on line 5 in a document known as a "tax transcript".

Why does my lender, employer, insurer, creditor, government agency, or school need my tax transcript?
