There are a couple ways to open your return:
- Launch TurboTax and select Continue under the name of the return you want to open.
- Open the TurboTax File menu (Windows) or TurboTax menu (Mac) and select Open Tax Return. Browse to the location of your tax file, select it, and then select Open.
Important: You must use the TurboTax software from the same year as the tax return you are trying to open. For example, use TurboTax 2018 to open you 2018 return. You won't be able to use TurboTax 2018 to open your 2017 return.
Note: Your return must be a .tax file for the TurboTax software to open it. The program won't open a PDF file.
