Sometimes issues arise where you will need a copy of the prior year's tax return. If you did not save a copy before you sent it to the IRS, there are still ways to find and print a copy of your last tax return.

Contact the company that completed your last year's tax return and tell them you want a copy of your return. After verifying your identity, the company will typically print you out a free copy of your last return.

Visit the company website where you completed your last year's return if you completed your return on the Internet. Typically they will provide a link to view and print out your prior year's tax return free of charge. You will have to provide your login and identity information to obtain your return.


Contact your local Internal Revenue Service (IRS) office or call 800-829-1040 to request a printed copy of your last year's return. You will have to fill out IRS form 4506 and fax or mail it to the IRS to receive a copy of your prior year's return. You can download the form from the IRS website.
