The What If Worksheet does not appear in my list of forms when in Forms mode. Where is it? I'm using Premier CD version for Windows.

Before I submit, I want to see if MFS will be better than MFJ.  The online help shows using the referenced worksheet in Forms Mode.  I can get to Forms Mode, but the sheet does not appear.

If you want to play around with different figures and tax scenarios without affecting your original return you can 

In the TurboTax CD/Download software by creating a test copy: 

1.  Open your return in TurboTax. 

2.  From the File menu, choose Save As. 

3.  Give the copy a new name to distinguish it from the original (for example, by adding "Test" or "Example" to the file name). 

4. Click  Save. You are now safely working in the test copy and anything you do here will not affect the original.
