Name on account

I'm trying to get a transcript of my tax return but can't cause my phone is in my wife's name, Can you add my name to the account even temporarily, otherwise I will have to pay to get a copy and I need the return for a court case and can't wait a month to get it!

Re: Name on account

I'm probably wasting my time doing this because the community can't help. I need to talk to an actual person!

Re: Name on account

No, you cannot change the name on the account like that.
What does your phone have to do with your tax return? If you filed it yourself, you should have a copy, or if you filed through a service, they would have given you a copy.

Re: Name on account

Yeah, I'm confused here as well, what does your phone account, or wife's phone account have to do with your tax returns?

That said, your wife should be able to get any information from the account you need.

Re: Name on account

Well I don't know who's going to get this but here goes, I went to the IRS website and wanted to get a copy of my tax returns for 2014 and 2015 . Their options are : get a transcript online(free) , get a paper copy($50/ea , takes up to 30days) ,etc . Since I need them yesterday, for court, I chose #1 .After creating an account, I went to the transcription tool, Requirements; an email address, a cell phone in your name.( so they can verify your id) problem #1, my phone is in my wife's account under her name.wont work , no one to talk to about an exception there ,Problem #2 , I asked her to go online repeat what I did, she said she doesn't know how, I said I'd help, she doesn't have time, let me use your phone then ? NO ! We're getting a divorce, and I have some nerve asking her , ! Next option, call CPA , ask for copies, "I'm too busy " , thanks, (I'll get a supremacy) , next option, go downtown to the IRS office, " sorry, you need an appointment! Option, Call Sprint and ask to put my name on the account, if only temporarily until I order the returns, can't do it, try to talk to someone, no luck, join community forum, maybe some help there , get lost, confused , find out I can pay $7 to ask a question. Forget it, ( this is the short story) so thanks for listening,

Re: Name on account

Sorry, to get a transcript online, you need an email address and a cell phone in your name so they can verify your id, and they do check . I can't find my copies, cpa, too busy , etc .

Thanks, see if you can find my reply?

Re: Name on account

If your CPA is too busy, I'd find a new one, and fast. You paid your CPA for a service, and part of that service is providing copies as needed on demand.

Kindly let your CPA know you need your copies ASAP or you will have to take it up with the Board (the State agency which regulates CPAs). Of course you will need to use another CPA if you go that route.

You can try to open your own account with Sprint, and see if your wife will let you take your line off her account (that is so you can keep your number).

Some Pay-as-you-go phones may work also.

Re: Name on account

Hello Yendor!

Thank you for reaching out and allowing us the opportunity to assist you with this matter. This seems like a really delicate situation and our best option to resolve this would be to perform a change of ownership(transfer your phone number to a new account with your name). Once the forms are filled from both ends, your phone number will be under a new account within 2 days.  We are not able to just change the Account Name unless one of these scenarios occur. To learn more about our Change Of Ownership, please click this link.
