Hi All, TurboTax is requiring and update for my Premier 2019 program. I can't open the program unless I update it. After I install and run it, the update alway

always fails.   It says it is going to cancel the update, not to worry it will work fine once I open it.

I go to open it and it wants to update again.  

Any tips on how to get out of this cycle?

Thanks,

Michael

There are a couple of things that you can try to get past the snag,

  • Try closing TurboTax,
  • Compete a  disk cleanup,
  • Restart your computer.  

If this doesn't work try this:

  • If you've enabled pop-up blocking in your web browser, please turn it off and try again.
  • If it's still not working, try again using a different web browser. (For example, if you're using Chrome, try using Explorer or Safari instead.)
  • If those suggestions didn't help, try going back to your first browser and delete cookies.
  • If you are stuck in updating your state return follow this link:  Stuck In State Loop

If you have no luck, please contact us.

Thank you for your reply Regina

 

I should have been more detailed in my note.  I am using a Mac and my issue is with the app.  I am not using the website to do my taxes.

 

Is there a solution for the app?  Maybe I should delete it and reinstall it?  I do worry about losing what I have done so far, but my guess is that is saved in a different location.

 

Thanks,

There are some known mac issues. Earlier this week, Error code -36 during TurboTax for Mac installation

This was just updated, "TurboTax needs to check for Updates" loop when attempting to e-file on Mac

 

Do save your .tax file before doing anything! It should be saving automatically but better safe than sorry.
