Where do I upload my W-2 form

This year we've made importing your info into TurboTax easier than ever before! You can successfully import your info directly from your employer.

If TurboTax doesn't recognize your employer's EIN for any reason, and you're using TurboTax Online or the TurboTax Mobile App, you'll have the option to snap a photo of your W-2 using your smart phone.

For instructions on how to import your W-2, select your TurboTax version:

TurboTax Online - Import Your W-2 

TurboTax Mobile App - Import Your W-2 

TurboTax Software (CD/Download) - See below.

Requirements to successfully import your W-2 directly from your employer
  • Your payroll provider needs to be a TurboTax Import Partner (we determine this by your employer's EIN)
  • Your W-2 must be available for import – most are ready by February 1, and some are disabled after the April filing deadline
  • We'll need the Box 1 amount from your W-2
  • You can also use the YTD (Year to Date) gross income from your year-end paystub. More info
  • In some cases, we'll need the Box d Control Number from your W-2, but only if your payroll provider requires this for the import (not all of them do).

If TurboTax doesn't recognize your employer's EIN for any reason, and you're using TurboTax Online or the TurboTax Mobile App, you'll have the option to snap a photo of your W-2 using your smart phone.

 Let's import your W-2!

Select your TurboTax version below and follow the instructions to import your W-2.
