How do I download my 2021 CA state tax return?

To access your prior year online tax returns sign onto the TurboTax website with the User ID you used to create the account - https://myturbotax.intuit.com/


Start the 2022 online tax return by entering some personal information then click on Tax Home on the left side of the screen.


On the Tax Home webpage -

Scroll down to the section Your tax returns & documents.  Click on the Year and Click on Download/print return (PDF)


If you used the desktop CD/Download editions installed on your computer, the only copy of your tax data file and any PDF's will be on the computer where the return was created.  TurboTax does not store online any returns completed using the desktop editions.

The federal and state tax returns are in one PDF. The federal tax return is first, followed by the state. When you open the PDF you can use the bookmarks on the left side to find the state tax return. If you need to print the state tax return, the print function in your PDF reader software will let you select the pages that you want to print.
