If you can somehow get back into your 2021 return, you might be able to retrieve your asset life history (this will not be in your saved forms, however).
The screenshot below was taken from the Asset Entry Worksheet in the Home & Business edition (which is a desktop (installed) product).
Thanks for the suggestion! Though I dont remember seeing that option to Quick Zoom to see the depreciation worksheet. Maybe I'll try to Amend the return then cancel it. :( I'd love to hear from the TurboTax experts out there for more suggestions! Thank you.
There should have been a Depreciation and Amortization Report included in the PDF download. It will list all the Assets you have entered for deprecation along with the placed in service dates, cost of the asset, total depreciation taken and total depreciation remaining.
To access your current or prior year online tax returns sign onto the TurboTax website with the User ID you used to create the account - https://myturbotax.intuit.com/
Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and on the section Your tax returns & documents. Click on the Year and Click on Download/print return (PDF)
The Depreciation and Amortization Report that @DoninGA described in his post is going to appear as shown in the first screenshot below.
If you want an entire depreciation schedule (as shown in the second screenshot below), the only way to get that out of TurboTax is the method I described in the first post (there's no other way).
Thanks @DoninGA. I downloaded the pdf return last night, double-checked all the pages twice, but did not see the full depreciation worksheet. I have the actual Form 4562, but what I need is the deprecation schedule or worksheet.
Please read and follow the instructions in this TurboTax Help article on How do I view and download a prior-year return?
When a user downloads a return, the depreciation schedule is not included even if the user selects to download all forms and schedules.
The only way to view the schedule is in Forms Mode by clicking the QuickZoom button to the right of Asset Life History in the Asset Entry Worksheet; I do not believe that schedule is accessible in the online versions. Interestingly, however, when a return is prepared in an online version and then opened in a desktop version, the schedule is available.
Thanks, All! I ended up chatting with a customer support agent who walked me through the process of review previous years worksheets. You'll have to go through the first couple steps of filing a new return. After you've confirmed your personal information, you'll be able to see the Documents menu on the left hand side. My suggestion for anyone trying to find WORKSHEETS from previous year is to chat with an agent. 🙂
FYI ... each year before you file simply save a PDF of the return WITH all the worksheets then you will not have to bend over backwards to get them later. Before you file you are given this option so take advantage of it Or go to the PRINT CENTER under the TOOLS tab.

This is an issue with TurboTax.
I'm going to make a formal request next week that the Depreciation Schedule (aka Asset Life History) be included when a user selects to save a PDF with all forms, schedules, and worksheets.
Currently, the Asset Life History form does not get saved, and is not included, in any PDF (it should, of course).
