how do I upload my prior year returns

I have a new computer. 2018 calendar year was prepared with Turbo Tax CD. The new computer does not accept CD's. I have loaded a PDF version 2018 on my new computer . Will 2019 extract all information ?

Please see this TurboTax FAQ for more information, it also includes a link on how to to transfer the PDF into TurboTax: https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/entering-importing/help/transfer-last-year-s-return-to-turbotax-fo...

You may get a more complete transfer if you can find the 2018 .tax files on your old computer and load them onto your new computer. The .tax files are usually found in a TurboTax folder in Documents.

TurboTax can transfer much of 2018's information on a PDF into the 2019 program, but maybe not everything (e.g., complex depreciation calculations).

Please see this Help article for instructions on how to transfer last year's tax information.
