It won't be found in documents (MyDocs).  Form 4562 can be found as part of your 2018 federal tax return assuming you had depreciated items on your tax return. 

 

When you sign into your online account and land on the Tax Home web page, scroll down and then click on Show next to Your Tax Returns and Documents.   From there, choose 2018, then select Download/print return (PDF).   You may need to register before you can select this option.  This will download a full PDF file of your 2018 tax return to your computer that includes all forms and schedules.   The PDF will be many pages; Form 4562 will be one of those pages.

You would need a copy of your tax return from 2018 to see form 4562. You can get a transcript or copy from the IRS by using this link: https://www.irs.gov/individuals/get-transcript

 

It is possible that you are simply depreciating the house that you are renting. In this case, the depreciation period would normally be 27.5 years. So, if you knew when you first started renting the house, you could do a simply calculation to determine the depreciation taken in prior years.

 

Please remember that you can only depreciate the building, not the land it sits on. So, you would need to know the cost you assigned to the house to determine the correct depreciation.

 

Also, the cost of the house would only be listed on the first form 4562 you listed it on (the tax return for the first year you rented it), after that just the depreciation amount would show on form 4562.

if 2018 was not the first year for depreciation and if no assets were added in 2018, form 4562 will not show,  you may have to print out the tax return or go into it and look at the asset history for each asset.   if you did not use TT in previous years, you may have to go back to the preparer or the software you did use to get the info.
