How do I find my Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) from last year?

Modified on Fri, 14 Apr 2023 at 01:19 PM

You will need to setup a PIN to make an electronic payment to the IRS and know your previous year Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) to make a payment to the IRS for taxes owed for the current tax return/extension due. To find your AGI, follow the steps below:


1. Locate your prior year’s tax return’s AGI “adjusted gross income”.

2. Use the AGI to create a PIN to submit payment to the IRS.

3. If you can’t locate your previous year's tax return, contact the IRS (800-908-9946) to request a copy of your prior year's tax return transcript showing your AGI (this could take 5-10 business days to receive in the mail).

4. If you can’t locate your previous year’s AGI, you can change your payment method to "check payment" (this eliminates the need for a PIN/AGI).

5. Put a check in the mail to the IRS. Be sure to write your “SSN” and “form 4868” on the check memo.
