Questions & Answers

How do I get a copy of a prior year tax return?

If you filed with FreeTaxUSA
If you filed your prior year return with FreeTaxUSA using the same account, you can find the prior year tax return in the Prior Years section of the software:
Menu Path: Prior Years

If you filed with another software
If you filed your prior year return with a different tax preparation software, you may be able to sign in to the other software to view an electronic copy of your prior year return.

If you used a paid preparer
If you used a paid preparer to file your prior year return, contact the paid preparer to obtain a copy of your prior year return.

If you still can't access your prior year return
If you don't have access to your prior year return, you can request a transcript of the return. A transcript includes items from your tax return as it was originally filed. IRS transcripts will meet lending or immigration requirements as a substitute for a tax return.
