I completed my 2020 tax returns (Form 1040 and 540) but had not yet e filed them. I opened TurboTax but the returns are no longer shown. Why?
You have to access your own account and/or print it for yourself using exactly the same account and user ID that you used when you prepared the return.
Many people have multiple TT accounts and forget how to access them. Log out of the account you are in now.
Or did you use the desktop version of TurboTax? If so, the files are on your own hard drive or any backup device you used like a flash drive.
I do not sign in to my TurboTax account to access my return. I guess I'm using the desktop version. I downloaded TurboTax Premium to complete my return. For as many years as I can remember, the tax return I was working on was ALWAYS shown when I opened the TurboTax app. I would simply click on the return and continue working. Now I open the TurboTax app and it is not shown. Why? The only saved version I have on my computer is the pdf version.
Did you forget to save it before you closed out of the program?
I always select save when I close out the app. Apparently it is gone. Makes no sense to me since when I opened the app this morning, and it was sitting there waiting for me to work on, along with my daughter's return. As I said before, never had this problem before. Anyway, thanks for helping!
