Where can I find the w2 info on previous returns

Only on 1040 line 1.   If you need to see a W2 you entered.   You have to download your whole return with all the worksheets.   It won't be your actual W2 but only the info you typed in or imported from the W2.  You can't use it for proof for anyone.  If you need an actual copy you need to ask your employer for another one.

 

Turbo Tax doesn't have or keep copies of your W2.  Only the info that was entered from them.  You need to keep your own copy or ask the employer for another one.

 

How to Access prior year online returns
https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/prior-year-return/help/how-do-i-access-my-prior-year-return/00/270...

If you can't get the side menus to open up to access the prior year..... You need to start entering some basic Personal Info in 2023 for the side menu to open up. Just continue a little ways into 2023. I had to go though about 12 screens.

If you used the Desktop CD/Download program then the only copy is on your computer and not saved or stored online. So you need to make and keep your own backups.

Or request a transcript from the IRS

Or get a copy of your return using form 4506

As a last resort you can get copies of your W-2s from the Social Security Administration. There is a fee of $126 for each year that you request. See the following link.
