How can I convert a tax file to PDF format?

We don't officially support a way to turn your TurboTax PDF into a tax data file, nor the other way around.  Read the following Help Article for more information:  Can I convert my PDF into a tax data file, or vice-versa?

 

Your tax data file can be read and edited in TurboTax.

 

ReferenceWhat's the difference between the tax data file and the PDF file?

What files do you have?  If you have a tax data file ending in .tax2019 or .tax2018 etc. you need that year's program installed to open it.  What problem are you having?

 

If you have a .tax file but don't have the program to open it you could try the TaxPrinter service to convert a .tax file to pdf at

How can I convert a tax file to PDF format?

I have a number of tax files with extension (example) .TAX2008 which brings up the 'VLC media player' which does not allow me to save the file as readable on my WIN10 laptop.  Is there a way to make these files readable?

Yes.  I posted above how  to convert a .tax file to pdf.  You either need to install the Desktop program for each year to open them  or you can try converting them to pdf files at  Www.Taxprinter.Com 

 

It might be expensive.  They are not connected with Turbo Tax.  Use it at your own risk.
