How would I find an electronic copy of a W2 from a previous employer?

TurboTax does not have a copy of your W-2—the Wage & Tax Statement—issued to you by your employer.  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).
