How can I access my tax return from last year without having to pay for it? It is ridiculous to pay for something that is mine and I was told I would have access to it.

Starting this year, you do not have to pay anything to access your past returns if you used TurboTax Online in those past years. Just log into account to access your past returns.

 

Please read this TurboTax article for more information.

For tax year 2019 there is NO requirement to purchase any 2019 online edition, nor is there a requirement that you must file a 2019 tax return using the online editions before you can access to a prior year online return.

You only need to register the 2019 online account to access the prior year online tax returns.

 

See this TurboTax support FAQ for accessing prior year online tax returns - https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/prior-year-return/help/how-do-i-access-my-prior-year-return/01/270...
