What is AGI and how do I find it?

AGI stands for Adjusted Gross Income. If you e-file your own return, you will need to provide the AGI you reported on last year's tax return as a security measure, to prove that you are who you say you are. If you filed a tax return last year, you should be able to find your AGI on Line 11 of your tax return.

If you can not find a copy of your tax return from last year, you should try to request a copy from the person, organization, or software that helped you file the tax return. If you are still unable to get a copy of your tax return, you can request a Tax Return Transcript from the IRS at their Get Transcript page.

If you did not file a tax return last year, you should enter $0 as your AGI for 2020. If you used the IRS non-filer tool or GetCTC in 2021, enter $1 as your AGI for 2020.
