I need to access the W2 information I input into my 2019 return in TurboTax. Where can I see this information?

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 $90).

 

To get a copy of a W-2 from Social Security https://faq.ssa.gov/en-us/Topic/article/KA-02501

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.

Or you can pay the IRS $50 for an actual copy of your tax return which will include copies of your W-2’s

To access your current or prior year online tax returns sign onto the TurboTax website with the userID you used to create the account - https://myturbotax.intuit.com/

 

Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and on the section Your tax returns & documents click on Show.  Click on the Year and Click on Download/print return (PDF)

 

 

 

If you are not getting a complete return then you will need to wait until sometime in December when they have finished archiving the 2019 returns and the Online system comes back online.   

 

If you need a copy before then ...

 

Go to this IRS website for free federal tax return transcripts - https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript

 

For a fee of $50 you can get a complete federal tax return from the IRS by completing Form 4506 - http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4506.pdf

 

 

Going forward ... ALWAYS save a PDF with and without the worksheets BEFORE the online system closes mid October.
