Tax Transcript Faxing Service to End

The IRS will end its tax transcript faxing service as of February 4, 2019, and offer a more secure alternative to taxpayers and tax professionals. Starting January 7, tax professionals who contact the Practitioner Priority Service number may, with proper authorization, have an unmasked Wage and Income Transcript deposited in their e-Services secure mailbox. For more information on the requirements to use the secure mailbox option, see Fact Sheet 2018-20, Steps for Tax Professionals to Obtain Wage and Income Transcripts Needed for Tax Preparation.
