To access your prior year online tax returns, sign onto the TurboTax website with the User ID you used to create the account (https://myturbotax.intuit.com/). Then scroll down and find the section Your tax returns & documents and click on Show.  Select the year you need access to and Click on Download/print return (PDF) or View adjusted gross income (AGI). You can also get free transcripts of your federal return from the IRS by navigating over to the IRS Website.- http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/Get-Transcript.

To access a prior year online tax return and you did not use TurboTax for the 2017 tax return or you did not pay for one of the 2017 online editions, you will need to start a 2018 Free online tax return and then Upgrade and pay for the Plus edition.  

Go to this TurboTax website for the 2018 online editions - https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/online/

You have to sign onto the 2018 account using the exact same User ID you used to create the prior year online tax return.  Enter your personal information in the 2018 Free edition. On the left side of the screen click on Upgrade.  Scroll down and select PLUS More Help & Tools.  Click on Upgrade Now (if Plus is grayed out then you are already using Plus and only need to pay for the upgrade)

To pay the TurboTax online account fees by credit card so you can access your prior year online tax returns, click on Tax Tools on the left side of the online program screen.  Then click on Print Center.  Then click on Print, save or preview this year's return.  On the next page, to pay by credit card, click Pay Now.  On the next screen just click on the Continue button.  The next screen will show a review of your Fees, click on Continue.  Complete the next screen to pay by credit card and click Continue.
