Printing a Review Copy of Your Return in TurboTax
It's always a good idea to review your tax return before filing. TurboTax gives you that option, no matter if you're e-filing or filing by mail.
Keep in mind there are a few steps you need to walk through in the TurboTax File area before you file. It's best to hold off until we ask if you want to review your return.
Are You E-filing?
As you go through the File area, you'll come to a screen titled Want To See a Preview Copy Before You E-file? That's where we give you the option to review and/or print your return.
When you get to this screen, click the Print Returns button, and then select Preview Print Copy in the new window. This opens your return in Adobe Reader, where you can either review the return on your screen, or print a copy if you'd rather review it on paper.
Important: If you're using TurboTax Online Basic or higher, and you haven't already paid the prep fee, you'll need to pay before you can print. For free versions, you'll just need to register before printing.
Are You Filing by Mail?
