My husband and I will be getting a divorce soon. I file under his name, but our TurboTax account is linked to my email. Will we both need to create new accounts?

I found the answer. He can take the joint account and update the email, but it would be better if we each created a new account. I really wish there was a way to split an account so that information could be imported from the joint account.

Unfortunately, there is no way to "import" tax data from one TurboTax online account into a newly created  TurboTax online account. There are, however, a couple of ways to avoid re-entering your personal tax information.

 

You can transfer your existing TurboTax online tax file to a desktop version of TurboTax - this will allow you edit the tax file to remove your ex-husband's information and proceed with only your information.

You can reverse the process if you do not want to use a desktop version of the program. You would have to download the 2019 tax file - the process will not work with the current year return.
