Looking for 2017 return

To access your prior year online tax returns sign onto the TurboTax website with the userID you used to create the account -


Scroll down and on the section your tax returns & documents click on Show.  Click on the Year 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 -




You have to sign onto your online account using the exact same user ID you used to create the account.

Close all TurboTax windows on your web browser (including this one).  Copy and paste the account recovery website link onto a new web browser window and run the tool.


Use this TurboTax account recovery website to get a list of all the user ID's for an email address.  Run the tool against any email addresses you may have used -


If none of the user ID's received will access your account, then use the option shown in blue on the account recovery website, "Try something else"


If you used the desktop CD/Download editions installed on your computer, the only copy of your tax data file and any PDF's will be on the computer where the return was created.  TurboTax does not store online any returns completed using the desktop editions.
