I hope you have regular backup of your data somewhere.  That would be the easiest and only way to get a copy of any return back (assuming you are referring to a softcopy).

A copy can be requested directly from the IRS. 

I suspect you are asking about just one return (yours), not all of your clients?

I think both of you are right.  Computers and hard disks are so reliable these days, backup is such an outdated thing to do :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
