How can i download my 2017& 2018 tax return and w2's/1099's?

TurboTax's instructions for printing and accessing current and prior returns are

·         For on-line returns, presented here https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1900748

·         For download/cd prepared returns here https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1900639


As for the W-2s& 1099s  and any other tax reporting form you may have entered or imported ... if you don't have a copy then you can ask the sender for another copy.


TurboTax does not have a copy of the W-2 even if you imported it.   It would only have a Wage and Tax Statement worksheet that includes the information from the imported or keyed in W-2 and emulates a W-2.  The worksheet would be included in the PDF of the tax return if you downloaded the PDF to include All forms and worksheets in the tax year the return was completed.  The Worksheet has all the information from your W-2 but it is not an exact copy of the W-2.

If you cannot obtain the W-2 from your employer, then for a fee of $37 you can get a complete copy of a W-2 from the Social Security Administration - https://faq.ssa.gov/ics/support/KBAnswer.asp?questionID=3836

You can get a free Wage and Income transcript from the IRS by completing a Form 4506-T - http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4506t.pdf  however it will not have the State information on it.

See this IRS website for transcripts - http://www.irs.gov/Individuals/Get-Transcript

For a fee of $50 you can get a complete federal tax return to include copies of W-2's from the IRS by completing Form 4506 - http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f4506.pdf

To access your current or prior year tax returns sign onto the TurboTax website with the userID you used to create the account - https://myturbotax.intuit.com/

 

Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and on the section Your tax returns & documents click on Show.  Click on the Year and Click on Download/print return (PDF)

 

See this TurboTax support FAQ for accessing prior year online tax returns - https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/prior-year-return/help/how-do-i-access-my-prior-year-return/01/270...

 

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.
