View and download filed returns

All past tax returns and confirmations filed through Managed Returns for Accountants are stored and searchable. Filed returns are available by the 5th of the following month. Returns for states requiring monthly prepayments for quarterly or annual returns won't be visible in the filed returns list until the returns are actually filed.

Before you begin

Make sure the return you are looking for has been filed. Returns are not available for download before that happens.

Steps

To view and download a single return:

  1. In Managed Returns for Accountants, Returns > Filing Tasks page, filter the table to find the companies and periods for the returns to view or download.
  2. From the table, highlight the row for the return you want.
  3. To the right of the table pane in the vertical ribbon, select the arrow icon clipboard_e85280f76b3ec2ea4c8c20c235b0bb4f5.png to display the right pane. This pane shows filed returns and payment confirmations. 
  4. Select one of the buttons across the top of the pane (for example, CNF for epay confirmation or RPDF for returns PDF).
  5. Select Download. Save the file to your computer or network location.
