    Government CERTFIED copies will do that.
    To
    clarify: the ATTESTATION is signed by the Tax Filer who is stating that
    the tax forms are a TRUE COPY. The NOTARY is witnessing the signature
    of the Tax Filer who is stating that they are a true copy.

    I am not
    saying that the OP should use this in his situation as I am unclear as
    to what he is asking but....

    I used the attestion of true copy when I
    had to submit my tax returns to the consulate for review (notarized by
    another notary of course).

    I have many years of experience with
    immigration filings, corporation/apostille filings (embassy - State
    Dept), etc. and we have used the Attestation for many things and have
    *never* had a problem.

    I know it sounds completely ridiculous and it
    legally doesn't prove anything - just an additional red tape step for
    the filer - but it works for many things.

    What can be done is
    to attach a document attesting that the copy of the tax filing is a
    true and correct copy (i.e., "Attestation of True Copy"). The tax
    filer would sign the statement and the Notary would notarize the
    signature.

    if you file electronically, your tax transcript will be available within
    14 days of submission. What this means is that after you send in the
    confirmation of electronic filing and the return has been accepted, the
    information is uploaded into the IRS mainframe within 72 hours and
    validated by internal check systems.

    Hi:

    Your answer is
    confused. A jurat and an acknowledgement are two diffrent things. I
    can envision an acknowledgement on the signature on a copy but that is
    clearly not a jurat.

    I've never seen a request for "notarized" tax
    returns. And that makes sense in that neither an acknowledgement nor a
    jurat is applicable or meets the reason for supplying the returns in the
    first place.

    However, I vaguely
    remember that when I orderd my tax transcripts over the phone, the
    automated system said that it must be at least x months after sending in
    tax returns before you could request tax transcripts.

    Getting the
    signature certified does mean that the tax return is correct or
    legitimate. I somehow don't see how this would prove to the consulate
    that it is legitimate. Only copies (certified or otherwise) of tax
    transcripts (which the IRS has obviously accepted) would be considered
    legit right? We really do need to clear up the myth surrounding the
    whole issue of tax returns, vs tax transcripts, vs certified tax
    transcripts, vs 3 yrs tax returns, etc..way too confusing..

    I wonder if the certificate authority could be considered a notary in
    this case?...

    I had my tax return notarized at a fed ex shipping place
    where they also have a notary.

    They notarized my 2002 return. I don't
    think it was something I had to do, since the I-134 is notarized, but I
    did it anyway, because the instructions that came with the k-packet said
    to submit a notarized copy of the most recent tax return. I only
    submitted my 2002 tax return. I also sent in the irs transcript.

    I
    might add that it does not say to submit the last three years returns
    which is a common myth repeated on immigration forums and is not correct
    for Manila.

    Hi:

    They did
    NOT request "notarized" copies. However, they may have asked for
    'certified" copies. Contact IRS and ask. Probably too soon to get
    certified copies of the 2003 return.
