How do I print a prior year return?
To print a prior year return, login to your TaxSlayer account and click on the "Prior Years" tab on the Welcome page. You will then need to click on "View Details" or "Access Return" next to the year that you would like to view/print. If your prior year tax return was electronically filed and accepted, you will have the option to "View or Print Return". The list of returns available for printing will be available to you. To view the PDF for each return, click on the printer icon to the right of the return you wish to view/print.
We charge a nominal $4.95 fee to access your prior year return. This fee is for the storage and availability of prior year returns. This nominal fee enables us to continue to offer you the benefit of being able to immediately retrieve prior year returns as necessary. Once the fee has been paid, a PDF of your return is produced. This $4.95 prior year access fee will also be credited towards your current year filing fees when you use the same TaxSlayer account to file your current tax return. **You will have access to the prior year return until October 15th of the current tax year.
Note: As stated above, your prior year return will only be available in your account if your return was filed and accepted through electronic filing. If your return was rejected, or if you never completed the e-file process, your prior year return will not be available for printing. TaxSlayer only retains copies of returns that were actually e-filed and accepted by the IRS and/or state agency.
**For security reasons, all returns outside of three years of the current tax year have been removed from the TaxSlayer database. If the IRS has record of your prior year return on file, you can order a tax transcript for the year you are seeking.
