Can I copy the download of Turbotax Premier that I purchased to another computer so I can work on my laptop instead of desktop?

I purchased the download of Turbotax Premier 2017 and downloaded it to my desktop but it will not open and says there is a problem.  Can I copy it to my laptop?

Yes, you can copy the download to your laptop. Or, if you purchased it from TurboTax.com, you can download it again directly to your laptop. You can install the download on any computer that you own.

You appear to be using a Mac. Are you sure you got the Mac download, and not the Windows download?

@EMCII Since you have the CD, you should be able to install TurboTax on another device. Have your license code handy and give our live representatives a call for assistance with downloading the product to your second computer:  Contact TurboTax

You can install the TurboTax software purchased on up to 5 computers that you personally own.

Last year there was a problem if you installed it from a CD then want to download or install it on another computer.   It doesn't connect you to an account you can find. You have to call in and ask for the download and a new License Code. 

 

See this FAQ.  It says....you can download your software directly from TurboTax. But, keep in mind, you can't use both the CD and the download — you must use or or the other.
