    I neet a copy of my income tax return with attachments and unfortunately my tax preparer does not keeps copies but only of the actual return. What would you recommend?
    How long does it take to get a transcript of your income tax return? Does it explain what were the attachments? I don’t need the1040 form or the actual return. What exactly does the transcript mention or show?
