Hi,I always do my taxes w Turbo Tax. works great. I printed out my tax return forms this year, but my printer was old and did a crummy job.I have a new printer and I want to print the return again so I can read it. I loaded my 2016 Turbo Tax disc into my laptop and my return isn't there. I thought everything I did would be on there. Can I find my tax return somewhere on my computer?Thanks,Holly

I read the following online, and I'd like to know whether this would work:JA: The Accountant will know how to help. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.Customer: Bob sells the property to his S-Corporation – when this happens, the basis the S-Corporation records is the sales price, or $550k ($200k original basis plus $350k of Bob's gains). When the S-Corporation sells the property in the future, it will calculate capital gains by using a basis of $550k rather than $200k. This will significantly reduce the S-Corporation's future tax liability caused by the sale. At the same time, the $350k of capital gains has effectively disappeared because Bob used his Section 121 exclusion.Total tax savings when using option 3? At least $53,000. That's the power of tax planning.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Accountant should know?Customer: Source of the foregoing: https://www.therealestatecpa.com/2016/07/29/section-121-exclusion-investment-strategy-eliminating-capital-gains/
