"How import from 2015 to 2016 return? Used TT on CD to file extension for 2016, now software seems to skip past place where normally choose to import previous year. "

  1. Open TurboTax 2016 and choose Start a New Return from the TurboTax File
    • Don't open an existing return by selecting Continue.
  2. When your 2015 tax file appears on the Good News screen, select it and click Transfer Return.
    • If you don't see last year's tax file, select Browse and in the new window, select All Files (*.*) from the drop-down in the lower right corner. Then browse to wherever you stored your 2015 return and open it.
    • Still can't locate it? It might be on another computer. You'll need to move it to your current computer.
  3. After the transfer is complete, check the screen for any special instructions. If none, select Continue.
  4. Now save your new tax file to ensure you don't lose any info and continue to follow the on-screen instructions,
  5. You'll also have a chance to review, edit, or delete transferred information later on.

Please note that once you've gone past the Transfer screens, you can't revisit them. If you need to re-transfer, start fresh with a new return by following the steps above.
