Can I download Turbotax to iPad?

That old answer is not quite right.  You can not install the Desktop program on an iPad at all.  You have to use the Online web version or there is a mobile app you can install.  The Mobile App works with the Online version.  Here are some Mobile App FAQs

Can I download Turbotax to iPad?

Sorry you can't download or install the program on any iPad or mobile device.  Only on full Windows or Mac computers.  You can use the Mobile App.  But that is just a portal into the online version you log into.

Or use the Mobile App which is just a portal to the online version.

You ca not install the CD or download or Desktop program to an iPad.  Only to full Windows or Mac computers.  Do you have a computer to install it on?  Did you use the online version last year?  Do you want to Transfer a 2019 Online return into the Desktop program?

 

Transfer from Online into the Windows Desktop program.   Expand the 3rd blue link

https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/entering-importing/help/transfer-last-year-s-return-to-turbotax-fo...

 

One way is to start a 2020 Online return and transfer into that.  Then you can download the .tax2020 file from online and just OPEN it in the Desktop program.

 

OR

If you used the online version last year and need to transfer your info to this year's Desktop version there are 2 ways depending on what you have.

 

1.  If you saved the actual .tax2019 file (not just the pdf file) to your computer before online was shut down in Oct. then start a new return  and the very first thing you do is Transfer from .tax file.  You can only transfer at the very beginning.

 

2.  If you didn't save the .tax  file to your computer or lost it,  there is a way to do it by starting a 2020 return in the Online version, transfer to that and then continue in the desktop version.  You won't have to pay for Online.   

 

First transfer into the Online version

Then to switch to the Desktop program

Sorry you can only install Turbo Tax on a full Windows or Mac computer.  Not a mobile device like a iPad.   Either find a computer to install it or ask for a refund.  Then you can use the Online version which also has a mobile app.
