That's how TurboTax prints. It creates a PDF file. You print the PDF to your printer using the Print function in Acrobat Reader, or whatever other PDF reader you are using. You cannot print directly to the printer from TurboTax.

PDF files should print just fine....what happens when you use Adobe Reader and open the PDF then try to print it?

That's a computer/printer issue, not TurboTax, sorry.

Save the PDF to a thumb drive and take it to a place you can print it ... a friend, family member/ office depot, etc.

I have printed directly to the printer for the last 5 years.  Why does Turbotax make changes that are so frustrating? Still cannot print from  the PDF file.
