Turbotax .tax and PDF files

Post by GKSD » Sun Apr 14, 2019 2:06 pm

I had been using Turbotax online version for about 7 years and this year I switched to the desktop version.

Turbotax used to archive PDF tax return files online - I think when I checked online couple of months back I could see my old tax return files. But I am checking online today and I cannot see any file archive.

Anyone seeing the same?

The desktop version saves the .tax files and a pdf copy in the TurboTax folder under Documents. When you start this year's taxes it will import carry forward information from the last return.

I don't think the desktop version saves anything to the web, I know mine never has. I've never used the online version though.
