Where is my 2021 tax return filed under laurabouley@yahoo.com

This is a public web site that can be seen by anyone—including scammers and would-be identity thieves who would love to contact you and pretend to be from TurboTax.  Please remove the personal information  (email address)  you posted here ASAP by returning to your post and clicking the three little blue dots on the upper right to edit your post.


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 2022 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.

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 return for seven years.  Returns older than seven years are purged.

Your email address is not your TurboTax Online user ID. Your tax return is filed under your user ID, not your email address. You can have up to 5 TurboTax accounts with the same email address. It sounds like you might be signing in with a user ID that is not the same one you used to file your 2021 tax return. Many people have more than one TurboTax account without realizing it. Follow the instructions in the FAQ at the link below to get a list of all your accounts. Before you start this procedure, make sure you are signed out of all your accounts, including the one you are using here in the Community. You can access the FAQ without being signed in.
