How do I find last year's AGI?

by Intuit Updated 2 months ago

To find last year's (or any past year's) adjusted gross income (AGI), select the scenario that describes your situation. If you didn’t file a tax return in 2022, enter “0” for last year’s AGI.

It looks like you didn't use this account to file last year, so we can’t find your AGI. Select a different situation below for more help.

If you filed with TurboTax last year but used a different email address and account, your AGI might be there. Try signing in with another email address, or find out how to access your other accounts (you'll need to sign out of this account first).

If you can't find your AGI to e-file, you can print and mail your return instead.

If you have your 1040 or 1040NR return you filed with the IRS for 2022, look on Line 11 for your AGI.

If you don’t have your 2022 return, you can order a free digital transcript of your return from the IRS. You can view your online transcript immediately, while a mailed transcript takes 5–10 days to receive.

Choose tax return transcript when asked what type of transcript you want.

If you still don't find your AGI, paper file your return. The IRS requires your 2022 AGI to verify your identity for e-filing, but if you paper file, you don't need your AGI.

Here are some more tips to entering your AGI:

  • Don't calculate your AGI from your W-2s or 1099s.
  • If you amended last year, don’t use the AGI from that amended return. Always get it from the first return you filed, even if that AGI was technically incorrect (for example, if you forgot a W-2).
  • If you printed and mailed your return and it was not processed by December 10, 2023, then enter 0 for your 2022 AGI.
  • If you filed a return last year, but somebody claimed you as a dependent, enter the AGI showing on your return for last year (not theirs).
  • If you filed jointly last year but separately this year, enter the AGI from last year’s return. The same goes for recently-widowed or divorced taxpayers who filed jointly last year.
  • If you're filing jointly this year but selected married filing separately last year, enter each spouse's individual AGIs from last year. This also applies to newlywed couples.
  • If you're a first-time filer over the age of 16, enter 0 as your AGI.
