How can I access my return after I've e-filed or printed it?

SOLVEDby TurboTaxTurboTax Online1226Updated January 24, 2022

To access your tax return after you've e-filed it or printed it as part of mailing your return to the IRS:

  1. Sign in TurboTax.
  2. Select Tax Home from the menu.
  3. Scroll down to Your tax returns & documents.
  4. Select 2021, and then select Add a State (you're not actually adding a state, this just gets you back in).

You'll now be in your return.


  • If you've already mailed your return to the IRS, don't e-file it. This can cause problems with the government, including refund delays.
  • If you've already filed your return and you make changes, these changes will be transferred to next year's return if you don't undo them and your information may not be accurate.
  • If you need to change a return you've already filed (for example, you forgot to include a form with your return), you'll have to amend your return.
