Transcript Delivery System

Use TDS to view your client’s return and account information quickly, in a secure, online session. EROs, Circular 230 practitioners and RAs are eligible to use TDS to request and receive account transcripts, wage and income documents, tax return transcripts and verification of non-filing letters. A Record of Account that combines both the Return Transcript and Account Transcript into one product is also available.

The IRS will only honor requests for these products when a properly executed Form 2848, Power of Attorney or Form 8821, Tax Information Authorization, is already on file with us. RAs must have aForm 8655, Reporting Agent Authorization, on file in lieu of F2848 or F8821.

TDS user access is defaulted to approved principals, responsible officials, and principal consents on the e-file application. These individuals may authorize TDS access to ‘delegated users’ in their business.
