I tried to e-file on my Mac but I received a message that I needed to go to the TurboTax menu and select "Check for Updates."  How do I get from the middle of my Return to the TurboTax menu?

TurboTax for Mac automatically adds the current tax form updates whenever you select Check for Updates from the TurboTax menu. This creates the illusion that updates are available even if you're on the latest release.

 

If you want to make sure you're up-to-date, quit and reopen TurboTax. If you're not on the latest release, the program will automatically download it.

 

If that doesn't work, you can force a download of the most recent update.   Here is how:

 

 

 

@hpitlick

  1. Open TurboTax and select the TurboTax menu.  -  On a MAC, it's not called Menu.  It will be under the TurboTax tab at the top of your MAC screen (its actually outside of the TurboTax program itself).   Do you see the tab titled TurboTax?  
  2. On your keyboard, hold down the Option key.
  3. This will change the Check for Updates menu option to Download Latest Updates...
  4. Selecting this option will force the most recent update for TurboTax to download and install.
