Go to this IRS website for tax payments -


You have to sign onto your 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 -

If none of the user ID's received will access your 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 userID you used to create the account -

You just make an estimated payment.  It will go against all the tax you owe.  Pay directly on the IRS website

Be sure to pick the right kind of payment and year.....2019 Estimate
