TurboTax and the IRS save tax returns for seven years.  After that they are gone.  Going forward---save your tax returns as a pdf or save paper copies for your records.

 

SAVE YOUR TAX RETURN !

 

EVERY year before mid-October you should save a copy of your tax return as a pdf and print a copy of it for your records.  That way you will not be searching online frantically when you need it for a lender, FAFSA forms, your next tax return, etc.
