When To Expect 1040 Transcripts from IRS for Tax Year 2021?
January 18, 2022
Per the IRS, year 2021 IRS 1040 tax transcript data is expected to be available the week of February 7, 2022.
Any 4506-T/C request submitted prior to the February 7, 2022 availability of IRS 2021 tax transcript data will result in an “NCS Reject” to prevent IRS charges for “No Record” on file from the IRS. You will want to submit a subsequent transcript request on or after February 7, 2022.
The following examples are based upon IRS 1040 tax returns filed on or before the April due date:
If a taxpayer files electronically, allow 2-3 weeks after the return submission before requesting a 2021 tax transcript.
If a taxpayer filed by mail, allow 6-8 weeks after the return was mailed before requesting a YR 2021 transcript.
The IRS has not communicated the availability date for YR 2021 1099 and W2 data.
