This doesn't actually help anyone. This is what is says: (That doesn't tell anyone anything if you just keep being directed to an article when you follow the article when you follow it.)

How do I access a prior year return?

You can access your prior year returns using the Documents tab in the navigation. 

When you sign in, make sure you're using the same TurboTax account (with the same username) as in prior years.

  1. Select Documents from the navigation when it appears.
  2. Use the drop-down menu at the top of the screen to choose the tax year you want and then select Download PDF.
