I need TURBO TAX to send me a copy of my 2017 Federal and State tax files. My computer will not generate these files for me. 

Please e-mail them to me at [email address removed]

 

Thank you

Please be aware this is a public Internet forum, so do not post any personal info.  No telling who might try to contact you and pretend to be from TurboTax to scam you.

 

The folks at TurboTax will not send anyone a copy of their tax files.    Moreover, regular email is not a secure method of sending such sensitive data.

 

How did you prepare the 2017 return?   Did you prepare the 2017 return in desktop software (CD/download) as opposed to online TurboTax?  If so,  you are the only one who could have saved a copy of the *.tax2017 data file or the PDF.

 

You wrote:  "My computer will not generate these files for me. "

 

Please explain what that means?  Does that mean you cannot find the *.tax2017 data file when searching your entire computer system?
