I want to download the software that will pick up my former TurboTax use not file with an online app. What happened to this feature that I have used for years?

I do not want to use another filing app but will if I am forced to use TurboTax online.

I want to download the software that will pick up my former TurboTax use not file with an online app. What happened to this feature that I have used for years?

You can download the desktop version of the software here: https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/compare/desktop/

To import last year's data, follow these instructions:

  1. Open TurboTax 2016 and choose New Tax Return from the TurboTax File menu.
    • Don't open an existing return by clicking the "Continue" button.
  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, click Browse Files 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. Wait for the Transfer Complete screen to appear, then click Continue to review the transferred information. You can also 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.

I want to down load a fresh copy of TurboTax so I can open my federal return.
