If you can’t get a hold of your prior year return/AGI to e-file, don't worry. You can always print and mail your return instead.
If you don't have a prior year return, you have a few options.
- Order an online transcript of your return on the IRS Transcript site.
- Order a printed transcript of your return on the IRS Transcript site that will be sent to you by mail to the last address on your last return. (If you've moved, file a Form 8822 to update your address which takes 4–6 weeks.)
- Call the IRS on 800-829-1040 or make an appointment at a local IRS office.
- Print your return and send it in by mail if you're still having trouble getting your adjusted gross income (AGI) from last year.
Note: If you didn't file last year and you’re in TurboTax, just tell us that when we ask you. If you've already entered a number for your AGI, manually enter 0 instead.
