Q: IRS account transcripts issues
I was hoping I could ask you a question.
When I login to get my account transcripts. For some reason as of last Friday I was able to see 2014 and 2015 and download them. However as of yesterday Saturday I can see all of them except for 2014 and 2015 it says N/A for those years.
Is this something I should be concerned about?
I was reading somewhere online and it said maybe I was chosen for an audit that’s why I cannot see them anymore. It just seems weird that it just happened yesterday.
A: Transcripts only stay available online for a certain period of time. If you did not owe any taxes for a particular year it is not unusual for them to be removed. January is the time of year that the IRS updates its systems so that may be why they disappeared. There is no guarantee that this is the reason. If you know that you owe taxes it would be to your benefit to try and set up a collection alternative as soon as possible.
