TurboTax Online saves only the most recent version of your tax return. It does not retain previous versions. When you amended your return, the amended version was saved and replaced the original version. If you did not save a copy of the original version on your own computer before you amended it, there is no way to get the original version from TurboTax.


I'm pretty sure that a Tax Return Transcript from the IRS will have the information from your original return, but it is not in the format of the actual forms. A copy of your tax return from the IRS might be the original version. A copy of a tax return costs $43, and it takes up to 75 days to get it. Go to the following link on the IRS web site for information about how to get a transcript or a copy.

"Being asked for original tax return"

 

Who is asking for the original return, and why? The whole point of an amended return is that the original was wrong. Why does anyone want a copy of a tax return that's known to be wrong?
