The option to print a tax return becomes visible only after you pay for that specific tax return. After you pay, the FILE menu lists the print options available to you.
To print or save a copy of your current tax return for future reference, complete the following steps:
- On the menu, select FILE, and then select Print Your Tax Return.
- On the page that appears, select the link to download a PDF copy of your return.
