How do I get a copy of a tax return prepared with the TurboTax CD/Download software?

If you are trying to download TurboTax software, go here instead.

Tax returns prepared in the TurboTax CD/Download software are stored locally on your computer.

Use your computer's Search or Find function, just as you would when looking for any other document. If you saved a PDF of your return, open it in Adobe Reader to view and print.

The tax data file (.tax) of your return has to be opened in the same-year version of TurboTax (e.g., open your 2018 return in TurboTax 2018, your 2017 return in TurboTax 2017, etc.). From there, you can print a copy of your return.

If you can't find your tax return but you know you filed one, you can also request a copy from the IRS.

Even if you e-filed, you'll still need to look for your return on your computer or storage device. We don't store TurboTax CD/Download returns on our secure servers like we do with TurboTax Online.
