Sorry.  TurboTax does not have images of your W-2's.  TT only has the data that was entered when you snapped photos of the W-2's.  The worksheets that are part of the pdf of your return contain the information, but TurboTax does not retain images of the actual W-2's.   You can request copies from the employer, or you can pay the IRS $43 per copy of each of your tax returns which would include copies of the W-2's.

I NEED A COPY OF MY W-2  (or 1099)

TurboTax does not have a copy of your W-2—the Wage & Tax Statement—issued to you by your employer, (nor does TurboTax have copies of your 1099’s).   You should always save those documents for your own records. You could ask the employer(s) for copies or you can get a copy from Social Security (for a fee of $126).

If you saved a pdf of your completed tax return, the worksheets will show the W-2 information you entered, but not the actual W-2.

 

You can get a wage and income transcript from the IRS:  It will not show the actual W-2, 1099’s, etc, but will show the income information the IRS received.  It will not, however, show your state information. It will only show the federal information.

Or you can pay the IRS $43 for an actual copy of your tax return which will include copies of your W-2’s

TurboTax (TT) does not have your W-2 (in either the on-line or desk top versions). However, it does have a "facsimile", if you typed in (or imported) your W-2 when you prepared your return. If all you need is the information from your W-2, you can get that from the facsimile (W-2 worksheet), found in the list of forms. Every bit of information on your actual W-2 will be on the TT worksheet. Whether whomever you need to show your W-2 to will accept the worksheet instead; you'll have to ask them.
