It was our federal and alabama tax returns. and I hit the no button on the save

The recycle bin should be right on your desktop if you are using Windows. Double-click the recycle bin icon to see if it is there. I cannot provide you with my contact information unless you accept an additional premium service under Just Answer's policy, which I can post now.

You can try this website for ideas on how to restore a deleted file However, if these files were from the internet an you never saved them at all, it might not be possible to recover them, unless they are somewhere in your temporary internet files or they might be able to be found with file recovery software.
