    is there a way to access filed tax returns online?

    1. If you used a software and saved your tax returns you can likely log back in and see your filed tax returns online. If not, you should contact the IRS for information on your tax returns. Here is the number for the local IRS office: 909-388-8108

    My only source of income is SSI. I was informed by H & R that I did not need to file. However, I do have a mortgage and I haven’t filed since 2018. Have we lost the ability to claim the interests paid on the mortgage?

    1. Hi Nick we can’t give tax advice on CountyWire. You may want to contact the VITA program for assistance here:
