After launching the TurboTax program, you can either:
- Click Continue under the return you want to open, or
- Select Open Tax Return from the File menu (Windows) or TurboTax menu (Mac), browse to the location of your .tax or tax data file (not the PDF), select it, and then select Open.
Please note that you'll need to use the same tax-year TurboTax program to open your tax file. For example, use TurboTax 2020 to open your 2020 return, not your 2019 or 2018 return.
