I use E-Services all the time in dealing with prior year information, but I remember hearing in a seminar that you could get current year information from it. I have an elderly client who can't find the SSA-1099; so I told her, no problem, I'll get the POA and get it through e-services. But when I try it says 2006 information isn't available yet (going through wage & income request) I realize most information isn't available yet, but it seems like I remember the seminar speaker saying you could get the estimated tax payments when the client doesn't remember what they paid, if that is true, how in the world do you get it? I tried everything. Any thoughts?

Taxea should be able to help you, if and when she reads your message. I've only recently used E-Services to add Corps and Ptrs to my Efile application, so sorry that I can't help.

I doubt that type information is available anywhere yet. As noted yesterday, I received the first CP2000 for 2005. Last summer I did an Alzheimer afflicted person for 2005. IRS had some information but not all. I suspect all you could find out now is estimated payments.

Kathyt...E-Services does not have current year income available until well after July neither does the practioner hotline. I suggest you have the client request a copy from the issuer. taxea

PS as for estimated taxes call the practioner hotline...they should be able to provide that information complete with dates of payment.

Just so you know...it takes the IRS a minimum of 8 weeks to get any info into their computers. Jan payment may not be available yet. Did your client write a check for payment...perhaps the bank statements, cancelled checks would help. taxea

Social security increased 4.1% in 2006 as compared with 2005. If you know 2005, you can calculate 2006 close enuf for gummint work.

Or have her call Social Security and ask for a replacement.
