How can I find my 1040 form of last year?

If you are in the same account as when you prepared your 2015 return you should be able to see your 2015 returns in your Tax Timeline (see picture below).


If your returns are not showing and you are in the same account as last year then you will have to upgrade to TurboTax Plus from your Federal Free Edition (see instructions below:(

To upgrade to TurboTax Plus:

  • Click Contact in the upper right corner of your screen.
  • In the “slider” window that opens, click Contact us (you won’t actually be contacting a TurboTax expert).
  • Type PLUS Option in the Ask a question (or tell us what’s wrong) field, then click Continue.
  • Select Talk one-on-one with live experts (again, this is just to trigger the PLUS upgrade). Follow the onscreen instructions to get PLUS benefits and confirm your PLUS add-on.
  • On the next screen, enter your credit/debit card information and click Pay Now.
  • After submitting payment, click or tap Tax Timeline near the top of your screen.
  • Mobile devices: You may need to tap the 3 white lines first.
  • Click or tap Download/print return (PDF) for the tax year you want.

To access your current or prior year tax returns sign onto the TurboTax website with the userID you used to create the account - https://myturbotax.intuit.com/

Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and on the section Your tax returns & documents click on Show.  Click on the Year and Click on Download/print return (PDF)

 

See this TurboTax support FAQ for accessing prior year online tax returns - https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/prior-year-return/help/how-do-i-access-my-prior-year-return/01/270...

 

If you used the desktop CD/Download editions installed on your computer, the only copy of your tax data file and any PDF's will be on the computer where the return was created.  TurboTax does not store online any returns completed using the desktop editions.

 

Or go to this IRS website for free federal tax return transcripts - https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript

For a fee of $50 you can get a complete federal tax return from the IRS by completing Form 4506 - http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4506.pdf
