Can I change from online, to downloading Turbo Tax ?

Yes if you have a full Windows or Mac computer.

 

You can move your Online file to the Desktop program and continue without paying for Online or needing to reenter your info.

 

To continue in the desktop version see this…….

After you get the program installed the first thing to do before you open your tax return .tax file is to update the program and install any state programs you had. Then open your file. So you first might need to start a fake return to be able to download the state program (go to FILE - NEW).

 

You can buy the CD/Download here,

My computer uses Windows 7. My laptop uses Chrome. Am I doomed to live without Turbotax? I paid for online and it will not work at all. The directions to switch to the desktop don't work, the online version shows no tools AND will not save the 2019 file. A trip into Turbotax world is always one that leaves me wanting to kill. Time to walk away. Time for a pencil and paper. But the program keeps what you entered a secret! So you can't even copy it to paper! AAAAAAAaaaaaaarghhh!!!!!

You should be able to use the Online web version.  The Online version is not the same thing as the program download.

@Frustrated22   What are you trying to do?  Reading your post again.......Seems like you filled out the Online version?  Do you want to efile or print and mail?

 

Before filing,  You can preview the 1040 or print the whole return

How to Print and Mail your return

Be sure to attach copies of your W2s and any 1099s that have withholding on them.  You have to mail federal and state in separate envelopes because they go to different places.  Get a tracking number from the post office when you mail them for proof of filing.
