This lets you view and print your tax return if your tax data file (.tax file) gets corrupted or if you no longer have the TurboTax software installed on your system.
- Open your return in TurboTax.
- In the upper-right corner, near the top, select Print Center (or, you can choose Save to PDF from the File menu in the extreme upper-left corner).
- Select the forms you would like to generate, then select Save As PDF.
- In the Save As window, change the default location if desired, and then select Save.
If you make changes to your original return, repeat these steps to ensure your .tax file and PDF copy are synchronized.
To print from the PDF file, open the PDF and select the printer icon. If you don't see this, try the tips in Adobe's Print PDFs support document.
