How do I download my 2021 tax return so that the .tax is something my computer can upload? such as .doc?

My computer is different from last time I filed. My OS chromebook will not accept .tax files

TurboTax does not support software for a Chromebook operating system.  Only Windows or Mac.

You can run TurboTax On-line from a ChromeBook on the Intuit web site, using the Chrome browser. You CANNOT install TurboTax Desktop (from a CD or download) to a ChromeBook. Only software from the Chrome (Google) Web Store can be installed on the Chromebook itself.  how to switch from desktop (old computer) to online

***************

You have to use TurboTax Online on your computer to do this transfer (it won’t work from a mobile device).

  1. Sign in to TurboTax Online and start a new return, or open or continue a return you already started
  2. After the screen has loaded, select the Tax Tools dropdown menu in the left column, and then select Tools
  3. In the pop-up window, select the Transfer last year's TurboTax return (the .tax2021) from your computer link (if you don’t see this option, you may need to clear and start over)
