How do I retrieve my Employer ID number after already finishing my taxes months ago?

I filed with Turbotax back in April.  I need to get back in and find my last employer's state ID.  I can't find it on my tax return PDFs from 2018 and 2019.  I'm filing for Pandemic Relief help, and the EDD is requesting me to provide that number.

How do I retrieve my Employer ID number after already finishing my taxes months ago?

Information that you entered when you entered your W-2's should be on the worksheets that are part of your pdf.  TurboTax does not have actual copies of your W-2's.

 

I NEED A COPY OF MY W-2  (or 1099)

TurboTax does not have a copy of your W-2—the Wage & Tax Statement—issued to you by your employer, (nor does TurboTax have copies of your 1099’s).   You should always save those documents for your own records. You could ask the employer(s) for copies or you can get a copy from Social Security (for a fee of $86).

If you saved a pdf of your completed tax return, the worksheets will show the W-2 information you entered, but not the actual W-2.

 

You can get a wage and income transcript from the IRS:  It will not show the actual W-2, 1099’s, etc, but will show the income information the IRS received.  It will not, however, show your state information. It will only show the federal information.
