Filing an extension for another person

I have filed an extension for myself.  I also help my parents with their taxes.  How can I file a completely different return?

Filing an extension for another person

TurboTax Online can only prepare and e-file one federal return (or extension) and up to five state returns per UserID. To file a return for someone else, you must create a new UserID for that person. You may create a new login (up to 5) tied to your same email address if you'd like. 

If you are using TurboTax Desktop, first save what you're currently working on by clicking File > Save As. Then, to start a new tax file, click File > New Tax Return.

To create a new account for TurboTax Online, please see this TurboTax FAQ:
