Why do prior year returns download as .txt files?

You'll want to make sure you are selecting Download PDF when selecting the year you are printing.

Please see this TurboTax FAQ for more information: ttlc.intuit.com/community/prior-year-return/help/how-do-i-access-my-prior-year-return/00/27010

Why do prior year returns download as .txt files?

Yes.....that's an EDGE browser issue.


For some reason, EDGE downloads "some" PDF files with a ".txt" extension.


IT really is a PDF file, so just change the .txt to .pdf   and it should open normally  (if you haven't mucked with the file when you did open it)

OR

Download the PDF using a different browser.
