Why can't I find my return in the Tax Timeline or in My Docs?
Signing in with the wrong login is the number one reason (by far!) customers can't find a return in their Tax Timeline.
We can provide you with a list of User IDs tied to your email address, which you can then try signing in with. Simply enter your e-mail address here and click Continue.
Other possibilities are listed below.
If so, your return is stored locally on your computer's hard drive. We don't store your return on our servers like we do with TurboTax Online.
We don't have copies of returns prepared by H&R Block, TaxACT, TaxSlayer, Jackson Hewitt, Taxbrain, Liberty, or anybody else. Just TurboTax Online.
Contact the company or individual who prepared your return, or order a copy from the IRS.
Oops. When you do this, it overwrites (replaces) your original tax return and there's no way to recover it in TurboTax Online. You'll need to order a copy from the IRS, assuming you filed it.
To prevent this from happening again, make sure you create a separate login for each return. Find out how to start a second return in TurboTax Online.
