I have been trying to get my IRS Transcripts

I cannot seem to get the IRS transcript website to verify my identity through my RW number, any idea why? has anyone else had this problem? any solutions

Hi @halstonb,

It is because Republic is a prepaid service. The IRS wants to use your cell number to identify you, however, this is only possible with a postpaid service that runs a credit check. Since, Republic (and other prepaid providers) do not perform a credit check, the IRS won’t accept prepaid numbers.

The “solution” is to avail yourself of the IRS’ snail mail verification option.
