How do I access prior year's tax returns when using TurboTax online?

If you used the CD/Desktop version of Turbotax, then the only copy is on the computer where you prepared the return. Turbotax does not have a copy online.

If you used the Online version of Turbotax, See the following TurboTax support FAQ on accessing a PDF of a return completed using the online editions

You can get a free transcript of your return from the IRS:

You can get a complete copy from the IRS, but it costs money, see this link for how to get it:

Sadly the official instructions do not work. There is no "Downloads" or "Documents" link in any navigation window after logging into TurboTax. There are no tools. 

 

There is a link to Intuit Account but it goes to info unrelated to this question. 

 

When I log in, TT starts working on this year's return. Nope, not what I want.

 

Here is a screenshow of my view after logging in...

@JeffOYB You can try doing a account recovery, to pull up all your TurboTax accounts. Maybe it was under a different account. Please see the link below for instructions:
