You can find your 2016 AGI In a number of ways:
The IRS requires your AGI for identity verification (unless you didn't file 2016 taxes; in that case enter 0 as your AGI) when e-filing, but as long as you transfer last year's taxes over to your 2017 tax return, we'll also transfer your 2016 AGI behind the scenes.
If your 2016 AGI didn't transfer, you might be in the wrong account, or you might not have had access to last year's return for another reason. That's ok! We can help.
The best place to get this number is from your originally-filed 2016 federal tax return. You can’t get it from a W-2, 1099, or other income statement.
Don't have a copy of last year's return? You can order a transcript from the IRS. Go to their Get Transcript site, choose Get Transcript Online, and follow the directions (if you don't already have an account, you'll need to set one up).
Even if you amended it later, you still have to use the AGI from your original 2016 return. Watch the video below, or choose the 1040 form you filed last year to see which line shows your 2016 AGI:
