What is a tax transcript and how do I get this document?

Unlike a tax return form, a tax transcript shows any changes either you or the IRS have made to your tax return after it was filed. The tax transcript includes your marital status, type of return you filed, your adjusted gross income and taxable income. You can order a tax transcript online at www.IRS.gov or you may call the IRS toll free at 1-800-908-9946.
