Can I download the 2019 1040 return form if I did not file my taxes in 2018?

Did you prepare a 2019 return?  Yes you can get a copy.  Or do you want to download the program?


Before filing,  You can preview the 1040 or print the whole return


How to get a copy after filing


Here's an alternate way to print by opening the filed return back up to print at the Print Center, where you can also get the worksheets.


Log in and at the Tax Home or in the section Your Tax Returns & Documents for 2019, look for a link Add a State.  Click on Add a State.  (you don't really add one.  That's just to open your return back up.)


After the return is open, click in the left menu column on TAX TOOLS, then PRINT CENTER.

Then choose Print, save, view this year's return.

The next screen should offer some options:  Just my tax returns or include government worksheets (optional), or include government and TurboTax worksheets (optional.)


Do you need to print and mail 2019?  

How to mail a return from the Online version


When you mail a tax return, you need to attach any documents showing tax withheld, such as your W-2’s or any 1099’s. Use a mailing service that will track it, such as UPS or certified mail so you will know the IRS received the return. Don’t forget state.


Important! Mail Federal and State in separate envelopes and mail each year in separate envelopes.
