Depending on the status of your prior year return, you can find your AGI a number of ways.
Electronically filed an accepted return by October 15th
If you filed a return for the previous tax year that was accepted by the IRS prior to their mid-October Extension Deadline (October 15th), then you should have a return "on file" with the IRS. If you do not have access to your prior year AGI (Adjusted Gross Income) but need that information, you have a few options:
- If you filed with our program and the return was accepted you can access the prior year account for that information, OR
- If you filed using another preparer, you can contact them for a copy of the prior year return or contact the IRS Help Desk at 1-800-829-1040 to order a free tax transcript.
Prior year return was rejected
If the prior year return was rejected and you did not electronically file an accepted return before October 15th, try using $0 as your AGI amount. The IRS does not have a record of the prior year return in the database.
Printed and mailed prior year return
Enter $0 as the prior year AGI amount. If the return was not electronically filed, the IRS does not have a record of the prior year return in their e-file database.
None of these apply to me
If none of the above options are available or right for you, you have the option to print, sign and mail the return instead. To print the return, go to:
