NOTE: TaxAct® does not provide archived copies of returns filed through the TaxAct Desktop or TaxAct Preparer's programs. If you no longer have access your saved return file, you can receive a copy of a successfully filed return from the IRS by calling 800-829-1040.
You may access prior year TaxAct Online returns by signing into the TaxAct account that was used to prepare the return. The service stores your 2014 and 2015 returns until May 1st of the third year following the filing deadline of your return. 2015 returns will be available through 4/30/2019, and 2014 returns until 4/30/2018. For 2016 we have extended the access of the return to be seven years after the filing deadline. 2016 returns will be available through 4/30/24. To access prior year returns, simply sign into your TaxAct account, click the My Taxes tile, and scroll to the tax year you wish to access.
