How do I E-sign my taxes

your prior year's (2018) Adjusted Gross Income 1040 line 8 is the E-signature for the 2019 return.  if this is for a return other than 2019, you can't e-file it. it can only be mailed in. it must be signed by hand and dated.

How do I E-sign my taxes

Look on your 2018 return for your 2018 AGI--that is what you use to "electronically sign" your 2019 return and e-file it.


Where do I find my AGI?


Your 2018 tax return shows your 2018 Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) If you filed a joint return then the AGI is the same for each of you.


Form 1040        line 7

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 2018

If entering the amount from your 2018 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 2018 AGI may not be in the system.

Note:  If you mail your federal return, you will also need to mail your state return.  You will not be able to e-file your state return.
