How do I find last year's Adjusted Gross Income (AGI)?

AGI is Line 4 of last year's Form 1040EZ.
AGI is Line 21 of last year's Form 1040A.
AGI is Line 37 of last year's Form 1040.

If you don't have access to your prior year tax return, you may call the IRS toll-free number at 1-800-829-1040 for your prior year AGI or prior year PIN. If you can provide certain information to the Customer Service Representative (such as your name, SSN, and current address), you may receive the prior year original AGI amount or prior year PIN over the phone.

What is the Self Select PIN?

You choose a 5-digit personal identification number (PIN) that you will remember if you ever have to discuss your tax return with the IRS in the future. The 5-digit PIN number serves as an electronic signature on your tax return.

What is the Prior Year PIN?

The Prior Year PIN is the five digit electronic signature used to sign your Tax Year 2013 tax return. You either created a PIN signature or your ERO assigned or generated a PIN signature if you used a tax professional to e-file your 2013 tax return. You can use the prior year PIN in lieu of the prior year AGI to verify your identity when using electronic signature.

If you do not remember your prior year PIN, you can just leave this field blank and fill in one of the other two.

You can also call the IRS toll-free number at 1-800-829-1040 for your prior year AGI or prior year PIN. If you can give them certain information (such as your name, SSN, and current address), you may receive the prior year original AGI amount or prior year PIN over the phone.
