SOLVEDby IntuitProConnect Tax165Updated October 20, 2021

This article will walk you through printing a return in ProConnect Tax.

Before you start:

  • If you're viewing or printing the return from the File Return tab, you may be prompted for payment, or your return balance will be reduced if you haven't already purchased the return. Any additional printing or e-filing of the return won't incur additional costs.
  • If you aren't ready to purchase the return yet, you can preview the forms instead.
  1. Go to the Check Return tab.
  2. From the left of the screen, under Forms, select the jurisdiction (federal or state) and the form you'd like to view.
