If you were in jail all of 2020 then when did you work ?
I NEED A COPY OF MY W-2 (or 1099)
TurboTax does not have a copy of your W-2—the Wage & Tax Statement—issued to you by your employer, (nor does TurboTax have copies of your 1099’s). You should always save those documents for your own records. You could ask the employer(s) for copies or you can get a copy from Social Security (for a fee of $90).
To get a copy of a W-2 from Social Security https://faq.ssa.gov/en-us/Topic/article/KA-02501
If you saved a pdf of your completed tax return, the worksheets will show the W-2 information you entered, but not the actual W-2.
You can get a wage and income transcript from the IRS: It will not show the actual W-2, 1099’s, etc, but will show the income information the IRS received. It will not, however, show your state information. It will only show the federal information.
Or you can pay the IRS $50 for an actual copy of your tax return which will include copies of your W-2’s
So you did not work in 2020 thus you have no 2020 return to be filed.
Sounds like you never filed the 2019 return ... I already posted how to get the missing W-2 forms and here is how to get the 2019 program or forms if you want to do this for free manually :
How to file a prior year
You can only buy the download for prior years. You have to buy a separate program for each year. They only sell the last 3 years. You need a full Windows or Mac computer to install it on. Buy the download here
You have to print and mail prior year returns. When you mail a tax return, you need to attach any documents showing tax withheld, such as your W-2’s or any 1099’s. Use a mailing service that will track it, such as UPS or certified mail so you will know the IRS received the return. Don’t forget state.
Important! Mail Federal and State in separate envelopes and mail each year in separate envelopes.
If you are getting a refund, there is not a penalty for filing past the deadline. You have 3 years to file for a refund. If you owe taxes, the interest/penalties will be calculated by the IRS based on how much you owe and when they receive your return and payment. The IRS will bill you for this; it will not be calculated by TurboTax.
If you want to file for free you can fill out the forms by hand. Here are some basic forms…..
Here is the IRS 2019 Form 1040
or if you want bigger type use 1040SR for Seniors,
