Your AGI is not on your W2.


The IRS uses your prior year AGI to combat fraud.   


You can find your 2022 Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) by: 


  • Looking at line11 on page 1 of your 2022 Form 1040; or 
  • You can request a transcript of your 2022 tax return from the IRS to ensure you have the right number. You can request your transcript online at the following link: Get Transcript  

Check these items as well to ensure you have the correct number.  If you: 

  • Filed late last year after mid-November or your return was processed after that time—try entering 0
  • Amended your return last year—make sure you’re using the AGI from your original return, not the amended one. (If you only have a 1040X form, it’s on line 1, column A). 
  • Rounded your AGI to the nearest dollar—be sure to round up when it’s 50 cents or more and down when it’s 49 cents or less. 
  • Filed with your spouse last year—you and your spouse have the same 2022 AGI. (Don’t split the AGI amount or enter  0  for one of you). 


Time-saving Tip: If what you entered is correct and you continue to get a reject, you won't be able to e-file. There's probably a data mismatch at the government, or some other situation beyond your control that prevents your return from being e-filed. In this case, your only option would be to print and mail in your return. 


This article will give you instruction on how to print and mail your return.

Your AGI is not on your W-2.  It is on line 11 of your 2022 Form 1040---your tax return.



Where do I find my AGI?







Your 2022 tax return shows your 2022 Adjusted Gross Income  (AGI)  If you filed a joint return then the AGI is the same for each of you.


Form 1040        line 11

If you are using the same TT account that you used last year, you should also be able to find this number in your Tax Home for 2023

If entering the amount from your 2022 tax return does not work, then try entering “0” instead.  If that does not work and you still cannot e-file, then print, sign, and mail your tax return.

You can get a free transcript of your past return from the IRS:  


Note: If you filed late or amended your return, your correct 2022 AGI may not be in the system.
