How can I get actual copy of tax return file?

I want to get actual copy of this year’s joint Tax Return with my husband.
I never see any of the paper works he have done. Plus he might fake my sign then filed it.
In order to get the copy, I need to send form4506 to IRS. However, this form4506 is also required spouse’s sign. How can I get the copy without husband know it?

Form 4506, Request for Copy of Tax Return
Use Form 4506 to request a copy of your tax return for a fee. You can designate a third party to receive the tax return.

Just read the instruction carefully and slowly for this purpose because each taxpayer can request a copy of the MFJ Income Tax return for this purpose.
Signature of taxpayer(s). I declare that I am either the taxpayer whose name is shown on line 1a or 2a, or a person authorized to obtain the tax return requested. If the request applies to a joint return, either husband or wife must sign.
There is a $57 fee for each return requested. Full payment must be included with your request or it will be rejected. Make your check or money order payable to “United States Treasury.” Enter your SSN or EIN and “Form 4506 request” on your check or money order.

  1. Go read the form again. His signature is NOT required. Just yours and a check for $57.

  3. the 4506 T is only a transcript, it is NOT a copy of the tax return
    if your husband had someone prepare your return you could request a duplicate from them, they will probably charge you
    you can apply for a copy from IRS which will cost $57
