You can’t run from your past…even when it comes to taxes.
With federal taxes, we’re all, more or less, in the same boat. The IRS is a one stop shop for everyone; no matter where in the country you live. When we’re talking state tax returns, we each seem to be out to sea on our own one-man floats. States are given some leeway to construct a unique set of guidelines for resident and nonresident taxpayers.
For federal taxes, you can always contact one entity; the IRS. If you want to request prior year state tax information, you’ll need to contact that state specifically. We’ve put together a list for you including the following information for each state:
- State revenue department telephone number
- State revenue department address (for tax purposes)
- State revenue department website link
- Price of requested documentation (if provided)
