I need to find my 2019 tax information and I don’t know how

You have to access your own account and/or  print it for yourself using exactly the same account and user ID that you used when you prepared the return.


Many people have multiple TT accounts and forget how to access them.  Log out of the account you are in now.

Or did you use the desktop version of TurboTax?  If so, the files are on your own hard drive or any backup device you used like a flash drive.

EVERY year before mid-October you should save a copy of your tax return as a pdf and print a copy of it for your records.  That way you will not be searching online frantically when you need it for a lender, FAFSA forms, your next tax return, etc.

This is a public internet forum so we do not have access to your TurboTax account to be able to provide you with your tax papers. Are you trying to access a prior year's tax return?


To access your tax return from a prior year, please follow the directions below:


First, make sure you're using the same TurboTax account (with the same username) as in prior years. Otherwise, the below instructions won't work.


If you're signing in for the first time this year, we may ask you some questions before you get to the Tax Home screen where you can access your prior year returns. 


To get your prior-year return:

  1. Sign in to your TurboTax account here if you're haven't already.
  2. Select Documents from the left menu. 
  3. Use the drop-down menu to choose the tax year you want and then select Download tax PDF.
