Here's how to find a tax data file (also called a .tax file) you created in the TurboTax CD/Download software for Windows or downloaded to your computer from TurboTax Online.
The data file must be opened in the CD/Download software to be read and edited. It's not the same thing as a PDF copy of your return.
E-filing doesn't keep a copy of your return on our servers. We can't retrieve tax files prepared in the TurboTax CD/Download software because the data is stored locally on your computer.
If you can't find your file, it may have been saved under a different Windows account or to an external storage device. Repeat these instructions in your other account(s) or after plugging in your external storage device.
