How can I prepare a prior year return?

If you wish to create a return for 2014 or prior years, you will need to visit the IRS website to print the forms and instructions needed.

If you wish to create a 2015, 2016, or 2017 return, please log into your account and click on the "Prior Years" tab. Select the year you wish to create and click 'Start a New Tax Return'. The fee to create a new prior year return is $29.99 for both the federal and state returns. The prior year returns can no longer be e-filed. To print the prior year return, click on the Summary/Print tab (on navigation bar) and then click the View/Print Return button. Next, select 'Print your tax return'.


The mailing address for the state return can be found within the printed state return. The mailing address for the IRS can be found here based on the state you live in. Be sure to sign the returns and attach all supporting documents (W-2's, 1099's, etc.).
