How Do I Print My Prior-Year Tax Return?

If you prepared your prior-year return with an H&R Block paid account (not the free version), you’ll find a link to all your returns under your account. In fact, we keep your available returns in our storage vault for six years — so you can download or print a copy of your prior-year return anytime. If you used a free account, you can pay a small fee and receive access to your prior-year return.

You have two ways to print your prior-year return:

  • Visit https://www.hrblock.com/ and choose My Block in the top right-hand corner of the screen. Then, choose My Tax Life and choose Tax History.
  • You can view and print your prior-year returns by choosing My Previous Taxes. If you used our Free Federal Edition to prepare your prior-year return, you can buy a copy of it there.

Printing Your Prior-Year Tax Return If You Didn’t File with H&R Block

If you didn’t file with us or if you still can’t find and get a printout of your prior-year tax return information, you can:

  • Get a free transcript of the data from the IRS by visiting irs.gov/Individuals/Get-Transcript. Note that your free transcript will only be a reproduction of the data and won’t look like the original form.
  • Order a complete photocopy of your prior-year return from the IRS for $50.
