If your AGI didn’t transfer automatically, you’re in a different account:
- Go to your account from last year and find your AGI in My Tax Timeline.
- Then, in the 2015 Tax Year section, click View adjusted gross income (AGI).
- From a free IRS return transcript.
You can find your AGI on:
- Form 1040 – Line 37
- Form 1040A – Line 21
- Form 1040EZ – Line 4
- Form 1040NR – Line 36
- Form 1040X – Line 1, Column A
Before you can e-file your 2016 federal tax return, the IRS needs to verify your identity with your 2015 adjusted gross income (AGI).
If you can’t get your AGI for e-file, don’t worry. You can still file
a paper return by printing out copies of your federal and state returns
and mailing them in. For information on where to send your return, go
to the IRS site Where to File Paper Tax Returns With or Without a Payment.
Tip: If you didn’t file last year and you’re in TurboTax, just tell us that when we ask you. But if you’ve already entered a number for your AGI, manually enter 0 instead.
