Can I open a 2004 tax return, without the software or package it came in?

Unfortunately, I shredded the hard copy and the software, thinking it would never be needed after 7 years, but now I find I need some information from it.  All I have is an electronic copy of the return.

TurboTax only retains online tax returns for the last 7 years, the same retention period as the IRS.  There is no way to retrieve a 2004 tax return.

 

However, if you have the .tax file from TurboTax there is a service that may be able to provide a PDF of the return for a price.

Go to this website - https://www.taxprinter.com/

 

Note - This service is not recommended by TurboTax

Did you mean 2014? The answer is the same, except that the file type is .tax2014.

Thank you for the answer.  That helps.  At least I know that’s not going to work for me.  Already found an alternate solution after knowing that one wouldn’t work.  Thanks again.
