Request by email – (All tax types)
If you are the taxpayer, or a person with a Power of Attorney (POA) for a taxpayer, then you may request taxpayer-specific records (for example, copies of tax returns, or an audit file) by emailing the request (and if you are not the taxpayer, then also a copy of the Power of Attorney) to the email address below.
If you are a U.S. government department or agency, then in some circumstances you may administratively subpoena quarterly wage records for a particular employer or employee.
Email your request together with your POA or email your federal agency administrative subpoena to firstname.lastname@example.org
Taxpayers who need to obtain copies of previous returns must also email a Form M-4506: Request for Copy of Tax Form.
For POA information visit Power of Attorney (POA) and Paid Preparers.
Please keep in mind that DOR does not keep records past a certain time, and may not necessarily still have what you are asking for.
