How do I re add a w2 from my last years info if I deleted it off on accident

If you deleted a W-2 that you imported from last year's return it cannot be recovered. You will have to re-enter the employer and income information. You have the option to enter it manually or you can import your 2017 W-2 into the tax return (either by taking a photo or importing from the employer) without having to type all of your information in. 

To add a new W-2 manually:

  • Sign into your TurboTax Online account and select “Take me to my return”.
  • On the left menu bar, select "Federal".
  • Select the "Wages and Income link in the top middle part of the screen. 
  • Click "Edit/Add" next "Job (W-2)" to enter this information.


To import your W-2 during the interview process, please see these instructions: https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/5723068


You can also take a picture of your W-2 and import it using these instructions: https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/4875306

Then that is point less. Turbo tax will see at as this years income... 

 

 You mean to tell me in this day and age you can't go back to the file prior and or turbo tax can re look at the data to fix the issue? If I follow this instruction it looks like I made the money THIS YEAR as oppose to last year.
