Can you please make TurboTax 2019 compatible with Windows 7. I don't want to change my OS just to run TT. Perhaps if enough folks complain, TT will change its ridiculous plan. I've been a user for 20 years and this really ticks me off.

Started with TT online and realized right before I paid, that it won't accommodate extra family members as the CDs did previously.  Downloaded the program and after paying, it gives the message about not working on Win 7!   Now, I'm frantically trying to backup files and destroy my perfectly working system for this **bleep** program...all because they want to stick it to you online and charge for each family member.  Dealing with family deaths and lots of other stressful stuff  in addition to covid.  This sucks!

I'm sure it's easy if computers are your thing and you know where to look and what to do.  Is this something the program prompts you to do or a hack?  A link would be nice.

The specific end of support day for Windows 7 was January 14, 2020.

If you don't want to use Microsoft you can still use Turbo Tax on a Mac.

Support for Windows 10 is not scheduled to end until October of 2025, so you have over four years to consider this dilemma. Moreover, software developed for Windows 11 may run without issue on Windows 10 (only time will tell and that is a long way off).
