IRS Tax Return Transcripts - Online Request Service Unavailable

The IRS online tax transcript request has been subjected to a security breach. Using the online request process, information was obtained for a large number of tax filers. As a result, the IRS shut down the online tax return transcript request process. There is no indication of when this may be operational again. The IRS site indicates that transcripts may still be ordered by mail. It does not address whether or not these can be ordered by phone.
