Need to add my AGI on my 2019 taxes but do not know how

Hello @blake2skylar!

 

It sounds like you need your 2018 AGI so that you can E-file your 2019 return.

 

You can view or download a transcript of your return at irs.gov 

 

Also, at this time tax transcripts are only available online as the IRS has stopped processing transcript requests by mail until further notice.

 

Hope that helps!

The IRS requires your 2018 AGI to verify your identity for e-filing. If you're paper-filing your return, you won't need your AGI because those are manually processed.

 

There are a few places you can get your 2018 AGI:

  • If you filed your 2018 taxes with TurboTax, sign in and go down to Your tax returns & documents. Select View adjusted gross income (AGI).
  • If you didn’t file your taxes with TurboTax in 2018, the best place to get last year's AGI is from the 1040 form you filed with the IRS. Look on page 2, line 7. If you filed a 1040NR, it'll be on line 35.
  • If you're having trouble locating your 2018 return, the second-best place to get your AGI is from the IRS. You can order a free transcript of your return at the IRS Get Transcript site or you can purchase a full copy of your 2018 return. Both versions will include your AGI.

You won't find your AGI on your W-2 or 1099 form because those forms don't take into account over a dozen above-the-line deductions that go into calculating your AGI.

 

If you didn't file a 2018 federal tax return (or you haven't filed one yet), enter 0 as your AGI.
