Do you have to have the 2018 and 2019 AIG to file taxes this year?

To e-file your 2019 return you need your 2018 AGI.  If you are filing a 2018 return, you cannot use the Online version, & a 2018  return cannot be e-filed.

 

How to find your 2018 AGI:

 

There are a few places you can get your 2018 AGI:

 

  • If you filed your 2018 taxes with TurboTax, sign in and go down to Your tax returns & documents. Select View adjusted gross income (AGI).
  • If you didn’t file your taxes with TurboTax in 2018, the best place to get last year's AGI is from the 1040 form you filed with the IRS. Look on page 2, line 7. If you filed a 1040NR, it'll be on line 35.
  • If you're having trouble locating your 2018 return, the second-best place to get your AGI is from the IRS. You can order a free transcript of your return at the IRS Get Transcript site or you can purchase a full copy of your 2018 return. Both versions will include your AGI.

If you didn't file a 2018 federal tax return (or you haven't filed one yet), enter 0 as your AGI.

 

Married Filing Separately in 2018 but filing jointly in 2019?

 

Filed jointly in 2018 but are Married Filing Separately in 2019?

 

You won't find your AGI on your W-2 or 1099 form because those forms don't take into account over a dozen above-the-line deductions that go into calculating your AGI.

-----------------------------------

File a 2018 return with TurboTax:

 

To file your 2018 with TurboTax, you would need the 2018 Desktop software (which is installed on your computer).  Prior year returns must be mailed.  

 

You can also go to the IRS & State websites for prior year forms to manually fill out & mail.

 

For tax years 2018, 2017, or 2016

 

You'll need to purchase and download the TurboTax software for PC or Mac as TurboTax Online and the mobile app are only available for the current tax year.

 

After installing the software, open it and follow the onscreen instructions.

 

Prior year returns must be paper-filed, as e-filing is no longer available. We'll walk you through that process when you get to the File section in the software.
