Davis, Nadler Introduce Legislation to Help Keep Families Seated Together on Flights U.S. Reps. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.) and Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), members of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, today announced the introduction of bipartisan legislation to help keep families seated together on commercial flights. H.R. 3334, The Families Flying Together Act of 201~5, would require the U.S. Department of Transportation to direct each airline carrier to notify passengers traveling with minors if seats are not available together at the initial booking stage and for each carrier to establish a policy to ensure, to the extent practicable, that a family is seated together during flight. "As a parent, seeing other dads and morns struggle with airlines to get a seat next to their young child on a flight is always frustrating," said Davis. "Consumers and families continue to experience this problem which adds unnecessary stress, so it 0nly makes sense for airlines to accommodate families, to the best of their ability, on flights. This bill would benefit families by requiring more seating information at the time of purchase as well as a dedicated policy that guarantees they receive greater consideration when flying. "Air travel is complicated and expensive enough for families without adding new stresses," said Nadler. "Families should not be stuck paying hidden fees, or buying 'premium' seats, simply because they wish to be seated together on crowded flights. It is positively absurd to expect a two or three-year- old to sit unattended, next to strangers, on an airplane. It is up to air carriers to make their seating policies clear and easily accessible to the public." The current bill to authorize the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) expires at the end of September. Davis and Nadler are working with the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee to get these provisions included in the upcoming reauthorization., Hold On to Your Tax Returns; Options for Students, Others to Get Help with Tax Information The IRS recommends that you always keep a copy of your tax return for your records. You may need copies of your filed tax returns for many reasons. For example, they can help you prepare future tax returns. You'll also need them if you have to amend a prior year tax return. You often need them when you apply for a loan to buy a home or to start a business. You may need them if you apply for student financial aid. If you can't find your copies, the IRS can provide a transcript of the tax information you need, or a copy of your tax return. Here's more information, including how to get your federal tax return information from the IRS: Transcripts are free and you can get them for the current year and the past three years. In most cases, a transcript includes the tax information you need. A tax return transcript shows most line items from the tax return that you filed. It also includes items from any accompanying forms and schedules that you filed. It doesn't reflect any changes you or the IRS may have made after you filed your original return. A tax account transcript includes your marital status, the type of return you filed, your adjusted gross income and taxable income. It does include any changes that you or the IRS made to your tax return after you filed it. You can order your free transcripts online, by phone, by mail or fax at this time. The IRS has temporarily stopped the online functionality of the Get Transcript application process on the IRS.gov website that delivered your transcript immediately. The IRS is making modifications and further strengthening security for the online service. While you can still use the Get Transcript tool to order your transcript, the IRS will send it to you via mail to the last address we have on file for you. To order your transcript online and have it delivered by mail, go to IRS.gov and use the Get Transcript tool. To order by phone, call 800-908-9946 and follow the prompts. To request an individual tax return transcript by mail or fax, complete Form 4506T-EZ, Short Form Request for Individual Tax Return Transcript. Businesses and individuals who need a tax account transcript should use Form ~506-T, Request for Transcript of Tax Return. You should receive your transcript within five to 10 days from the time the IRS receives your request. Please note that ordering your transcript online or over the phone are the quickest options. Keep in mind that the method you used to file your return and whether you have a refund or balance due affects your current year ~anscript availability. Use this chart to determine when you can order your transcript. If you need a copy of your filed and processed tax return, it will cost $50 for each tax year. You should complete Form 4506, Request for Copy Of Tax Return, to make the request. Mail it to the IRS address listed on the form for your area. Copies are generally available for the current year and past six years. You should allow 75 days for delivery. Mortgage Applicants. If you are applying for a mortgage, most mortgage companies only require a tax return transcript for income verification purposes and participate in our IVES (Income Verification Express Service) program. If you need to order a transcript, please follow the process described above and have it mailed to the address we have on file for you. Please plan accordingly and allow for time for delivery. Disaster Victims. If you live in a federally declared disaster area, you can get a free copy of your tax return. Visit IRS.gov for more disaster relief information. Financial Aid Applicants. If you are applying for financial aid, you can use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on the FAFSA website to import your tax return information to your financial aid application. The temporary shutdown of the Get Transcript tool does not affect the Data Retrieval Tool. You may also click on their help page for more information.
