This is an IRS summary or overview of your tax return information. IRS tax records are not photocopies of your actual tax return with all the forms and attachments. There are five types, and they include most line items from your tax return, such as your adjusted gross income (AGI), as well as information about your filing status, payments, and return type.
They display only partial personal information, such as concealing all but the last four digits of your Social Security number. But financial and tax information, such as wages and taxable income, is fully visible.
