What can my transcript tell me?

Each transcript has a different purpose. The “return” transcript and the “account” transcript are the most common two. The “return” transcript is usually an almost exact copy of your filed tax return, whereas the “account” transcript will have codes that indicate activity on your account. Ordering transcripts by mail is not a reliable way to find out if you are done processing or to see if a DDD is in your near future. Click here to learn more.

POST YOUR ACTUAL TAX REFUND EXPERIENCE HERE: This is a “user to user” site and the primary mode of support is peer-to-peer, meaning users helping other users. Admin and moderators are not always present or may not be right, or have answers to questions. Users become more informed when they are here often to read and comment. We call them Top Contributors. We are not a group of experts, merely individuals who have learned more than we ever wanted to know about the tax refund process.'
