How do I retrieve a 2018 TT Netfile Confirmation number? I missed printing one. Also, why does only 1 show the green checkmark even though I have printed 3 confirmations?

I filed 4 returns but missed printing one confirmation number for the 3rd return.  I have conf #'s for 1,2 & 4.  But, TurboTax 2018 (disk version) only gives the green tick for #4.  I have conf #'s for 1 & 2, but TT tells me to finish up & file.

Even on #4, at the top it says "you are ready to file" about 5cm above the green check saying that I have filed, so that's not working properly either.

And the only answers about this on this forum must be for an older version because they do not work with 2018.  The Electronic Filing heading under File is a different name too and does not lead to conf #'s.



When using TurboTax Desktop version - once you click on Netfile and the confirmation number comes up - you click on continue then you will see the confirmation number show up as the others did.

  1.  If you’re in Forms view, select EasyStep at the top of your screen.
  2. Once in EasyStep, on the left-side menu, select File and then select Electronic Filing (NETFILE).
  3. The return(s) you’ve filed will be listed with a green checkmark, the confirmation number, and the date they were filed. If you haven't filed yet,  your return (and that of your spouse, if applicable) will be listed, but without a checkmark, date, or confirmation number.

We appreciate you bringing this to our attention we will be sure to have our team take a look at why it doesn't show up with a green check mark.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
