I am not able to download load my 2019 taxes so I can print

You didn't mention what your situation is.   Have you already filed and are printing for your records?   Or are you printing to review prior to filing?  Or printing to file your return by mail?

 

If you efiled, has your return been accepted?   If not yet accepted, it's best to wait until it is, then your return PDF should also have the electronic postmark in it.   But the following may explain your current issue:

 

After one has efiled and been accepted, it can sometimes take a return PDF a while to update and become available at the Tax Home.   You didn't say "how" you are trying to print.    If you can't use the Download/print button at the Tax Home or the "Download/print the PDF" link in the section "Your Tax Returns & Documents", or if you're getting incomplete documents when you use one of those methods, here's an alternate way to print by opening the filed return back up to print at the Print Center.

 

NOTE:  When you open your return back up, do not make any changes in it if it's already been filed.  If you later have to amend the return, it has to start off exactly as it was when it was originally filed.

 

  • Log in and at the Tax Home or in the section "Your Tax Returns & Documents" for 2019, look for a link "Add a State."
  • Click on "Add a State."  (you don't really add one.  That's just to open your return back up.)
  • After the return is open, click in the left menu column on TAX TOOLS, then PRINT CENTER.
  • Then choose "Print, save, view this year's return."
  • The next screen should offer some options:  "Just my tax returns", or "include government worksheets (optional)", or "include government and TurboTax worksheets (optional.)"
  • See if one of those PDFs has what you need.


NOTE:  Remember all PDF tax documents and tax data files are very sensitive files, since they contain your personal ID info, financial data, and possibly bank account numbers, etc.  Be sure to store them safely and securely to guard against computer theft, hacking, etc.

 When you open your return back up, do not make any changes in it if it's already been filed.  If you later have to amend the return, it has to start off exactly as it was when it was originally filed.

 

  • Log in and at the Tax Home or in the section "Your Tax Returns & Documents" for 2020, look for a link "Add a State."
  • Click on "Add a State."  (you don't really add one.  That's just to open your return back up.)
  • After the return is open, click in the left menu column on TAX TOOLS, then PRINT CENTER.
  • Then choose "Print, save, view this year's return."
  • The next screen should offer some options:  "Just my tax returns", or "include government worksheets (optional)", or "include government and TurboTax worksheets (optional.)"
  • See if one of those PDFs has what you need.  The latter has the most pages.

@ Nayda1000 

 When you follow the steps above, you'll have a choice of various PDFs.   I would only give the mortgage company the basic return as filed, which is only a few pages long.  I wouldn't give them the worksheets and summary pages that are in the larger PDFs since they won't need those and have no business having them.  But you may wish to keep the large PDF with all the worksheets for your own records.     If you download the large PDF, you can still select and print out the pages for the mortgage company that represent the basic return, or you can download the small PDF to print the basic return for the mortgage company.
