Do you have a TurboTax Online account?

[Resolved] If the sidebar doesn't display any way to get to the Tax Home, how can I find my tax returns I filed last year?

I am filing my tax returns without TurboTax this year, and I would like to reference my returns I filed last year for 2022. I accidentally started filing with TurboTax for this year, and now whenever I log into the website it just takes me to the place to fill out my returns for 2023 and there are no options on the sidebar to navigate out of the page.

 

Edit: If I continued to the next page, it gave me the option to view documents from past years, and I was able to access it.

  You have to access your own account and/or  print it for yourself using exactly the same account and user ID that you used when you prepared the return.

 

Start a 2023 return online and enter some personal information  so that the menu on the left opens up and lets you access your past year returns.

Many people have multiple TT accounts and forget how to access them.  Log out of the account you are in now.

Or did you use the desktop version of TurboTax?  If so, the files are on your own hard drive or any backup device you used like a flash drive.

You can get a free transcript from the IRS or for a fee of $43, an actual copy of your tax return.

SAVE YOUR TAX RETURN !

 

EVERY year before mid-October you should save a copy of your tax return as a pdf and print a copy of it for your records.  That way you will not be searching online frantically when you need it for a lender, FAFSA forms, your next tax return, etc.

NOTE:  TurboTax and the IRS save returns for seven years.  Returns older than seven years are purged.

Yes, you still have a Tax Home page even if you started your return for 2023.

 

You are on the Tax Home page as soon as you log in to your TurboTax account. If you scroll down that first page, you will see Your tax returns and documents at the bottom. 

 

Select 2022 and you can download, print or save your 2022 return.
