Hi, my name is Mark. I will be happy to help you with your questions. You may have tried this already. Did you try searching for the file on your computer. If you search for ***.tax2016 you will pull up the turbo tax files for 2016. You could also obtain a tax transcript from the IRS. The transcript will show a summarized version of your return. Here is a link to the IRS website to request a copy.

You could request a copy of the return from the IRS. You would need to complete Form 4506. The IRS charges of a fee of $50 per return.
