USA Funds® created a resource to assist with completing the verification process for 2014-2015. The USA Funds “Comparison of 2013 Tax Return and Tax Transcript Data” includes sample 2013 tax returns — Form 1040EZ, Form 1040A and Form 1040 — and related tax transcripts.
To aid in identifying crucial information contained on tax transcripts, the USA Funds sample 2013 tax documents help cross-reference information on tax returns and tax transcripts.
For applicants selected for verification, federal regulations require the use of Internal Revenue Service tax transcripts to document certain types of income, unless the applicant provided unaltered IRS data using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.
Tax transcripts do not include tax return line item numbers that appear on the 1040 forms, however, so using a tax return transcript to perform verification can become a complex process requiring significant time and effort.
