Print my return

If you are looking for instructions on how to print your return:

  1. Sign in to your account with the same login you used to file your return.
  • If you can't remember, go here so we can help you get log in.
  • Once you're signed in, click Taxes in the top-left corner. This will take you to your Tax Timeline. 
  • Scroll to the bottom for Some things you can do. From here, you can click to download and print your taxes. 
    • Tip: Click Download all forms and worksheets (current-year returns only) for all the calculation worksheets.
  • Your return will open in Adobe Reader. Click the "printer" icon to open the Print window (or select Print from the File menu in the upper left corner).
  • Make any adjustments in the Print window, such as number of copies, and then click the Print button at the bottom.
  • If nothing prints or the PDF saves instead of prints, repeat Step 4 and then:
    • Click the Advanced button near the top of the popup window;
    • Clear the Print to File checkbox;
    • Click OK,and then click the Print button again.

    When you print the "hard copy" of the return you filed, it'll include extra documentation and calculation worksheets for your files. However, it won't include W-2, 1099, or any other forms from your employer, bank, brokerage (etc.) because TurboTax didn't generate those forms. Contact the party who originally issued those forms if you need those.

    @raywanda37 If the above instructions did not work, you can also try printing your tax return following the instructions below:

    For the TurboTax Online Version, to download and print all of the current years forms and worksheets:

    1. Sign in to your TurboTax account
    2. Click on Tax Home
    3. Scroll to bottom of page
    4. Click on Add a State (we're not really going to add anything)
    5. Click on Tax tools (left menu)
    6. Click on Print Center
    7. Click on Print, save or preview this year's return
    8. Put a check mark in the box for Federal Returns and State Returns (if you have one, or more).
    9. Click Include government and TurboTax worksheets
    10. Click View or print forms
    11. A new window will open that will give you the option to download and/or print.   This will include all forms and worksheets, including vouchers.

    Hi,

     

    I have tried many times to print my 2020 1040 Tax return.

    Although saved as a PDF file I cannot print from it.

    What to do?

    You must have a PDF compatible application on your computer to print the PDF of the tax return, such as Adobe Reader - https://get.adobe.com/reader/

    Are you able to open the PDF and view the individual pages?    It can be opened in a PDF reader or can be opened in browser.    What are you using--a PDF reader, or are you opening the PDF in a browser?    If you have been using a browser to open it, you can try to open it a different browser, but all of the well-known browsers should be able to open/print a PDF.    

     

    If you are using Windows, you can right-click the saved PDF file you downloaded, and in the popup menu choose "Open With" to choose the program you want to open it.   There's probably a similar process with Mac, but the method is possibly different.
