No, this was not helpful. My client is having trouble downloading his previous years refund. We have tried to download and upload them multiple times in many different ways. It keeps bringing us to the point to where he needs to complete this years taxes. When we click download nothing happens. His computer is up to date and I had him close and re open his browser.
He Prince needs to print his previous years taxes for a mortgage situations.
@donovan23 If you are unable to download your client's prior year's tax returns, he may not be in the same account he used in previous years. Please see How many Intuit Accounts do I have with TurboTax? to determine if he may have inadvertently created an additional account.
Once you ensure that it is the right account, please see How do I access a prior year return? for additional information.
