IRS Relaunches "Get Transcript" Online Tool

The Internal Revenue Service says that its Get Transcript tool is back online and more secure than ever. I'm not sure what that means but I do know that they are finally using a two-step authentication process.

To use the new tool, you’ll still need to know all the info about yourself that was previously required آ— Social Social Security Number, address, filing status آ— but in addition, you’ll need to provide an email address, a cell phone that can receive text messages, and certain financial account information (a credit card number, or mortgage or home equity loan, auto loan etc.) to further authenticate your identity.
