The government offers a link to print the form out from any computer for free, but fees may be incurred if printing the form at a location such as a public library where they charge for printouts, as stated on the IRS website. The form comes in multiple types depending on exactly what kind of copy or information a taxpayer may need off of the return he filed previously.
Two of the three types of copies that the 4506 forms allow taxpayers to receive are free transcripts, according to TaxAct. The third type of print out is a full exact copy of a taxpayer's return and costs $50, as of 2015. The 4506-T form is the long form used to request a transcript, which is the information off the tax return without being an exact copy.
