How to Get Prior Year State Tax Information

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)
