I checked the TurboTax site for getting a prior year copy and here is the instructions TurboTax posted:
f you paid for TurboTax this year, you can download every return until October 2017. If you didn't pay to file this year, you need to upgrade and pay for TurboTax before you can download old tax returns.
If that doe snot work for you then you can get a copy from the IRS. When requesting your copy, you can choose either a tax return transcript, which is free, or an exact copy which costs.
Exact copies include your W-2s and all attachments, and are available back to 2009. To order, fill out Form 4506. Please allow up to 75 days for delivery.
Please remember that you are required to rate in a positive way (look for the STARS or SMILEY FACES) so I am credited with responding.
Checking to see if you used the instructions and how you responded
