How do I find last year's AGI?

(Note: If you only filed a return for a stimulus payment in 2019 using TurboTax Stimulus Registration or the IRS Non Filers: Enter Payment Info, enter 1 for your AGI.)

The IRS requires your 2019 AGI to verify your identity for e-filing. (If you're paper-filing your return, you won't need your AGI, because those are manually processed.)

Select the option below that best describes your situation.

  1. Sign in to your TurboTax account
  2. Scroll down to Your tax returns & documents
  3. Select View adjusted gross income (AGI) 
    1. If you already filed your 2020 tax return, you have to select 2019 first

If you have your 2019 1040 return you filed with the IRS, look on line 8b for your AGI. If you filed a 1040NR, look on line 35.

If you don’t have your 2019 return, you can order a free digital transcript of your return from the IRS directly through their Get Transcript site (it usually takes around 24 hours to receive the transcript). Or you can purchase a full copy of your return from the IRS. Both versions will include your AGI.

Not to worry! Enter 0 as your AGI if you didn’t file.

Note: You won't find your AGI on your W-2 or 1099 form, because those forms don't take into account over a dozen above-the-line deductions that go into calculating your AGI.
