Referencing Last Years Tax Return

How do I reference the previous years tax return?  In previous years I remember Turbo Tax referencing the previous years tax return for personal information and tax information.  I am using Turbo Tax 2020 and I have not seen any reference to my previous years return.  Usually I remember Turbo Tax asking me how I filed last year to use the previous years return and I have not seen that yet.

Referencing Last Years Tax Return

You have to start your new return using exactly the same account and user ID that you used for 2019 and do the transfer before you enter any new 2020 data.   If you start entering data, it is too late to do the transfer.

You have to sign onto your 2019 online account using the exact same User ID you used to create the online account.

Close all TurboTax windows on your web browser (including this one).  Copy and paste the account recovery website link onto a new web browser window and run the tool.

Use this TurboTax account recovery website to get a list of all the User ID's for an email address.  Run the tool against any email addresses you may have used - https://myturbotax.intuit.com/account-recovery

If none of the user ID's received will access your 2019 account, then use the option shown in blue on the account recovery website, "Try something else"

 

If you used the desktop CD/Download editions installed on your computer, the only copy of your tax data file and any PDF's will be on the computer where the return was created.  TurboTax does not store online any returns completed using the desktop editions.

 

To access your prior year tax returns sign onto the TurboTax website with the User ID you used to create the account - https://myturbotax.intuit.com/

Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and on the section Your tax returns & documents click on Show.  Click on the Year and Click on Download/print return (PDF)
