Question

I have installed Turbo tax on a different computer. Is it possible to move my previous years data to it so it can be loaded into this new installation?

 

Thx

On the old computer that has TurboTax installed and where you created tax returns, the TurboTax Folder in the Documents directory should have the tax data files and any saved PDF's of your tax returns.  If it does not then something caused those files to be moved to another location.

Do a hard drive search for all files with an extension of .tax*  Also, look in the Recycle Bin if you are using a Window PC.
