Windows 7 Requirement

I just noted that Turbo Tax 2019 will require at least Windows 8 to be supported.

I like many others prefer to remain on Windows 7 because of multiple reasons.

I for one being in a consulting business would be required to update a host of software,

which includes Quick Books at a substantial cost. 

And, I DO NOT intend to use on-line Turbo Tax as you have suggested.

My choice may be other financial means of creating tax reporting.

Windows 7 Requirement

Microsoft ended mainstream support for Windows 7 on January 13, 2015, but extended support won't end until January 14, 2020.


While TurboTax 2019 software may well run on a PC using Win 7, it appears that TurboTax will not provide any support or assistance for users with 2019 software installed on PC using the Win 7 OS.


If you can find another tax preparation software company where the provider supports their 2019 software on a non-supported OS, let this message board know so we can pass that information on to other users.

Can you define loss of support and assistance for Turbo Tax 2019 on Windows 7.

It sounds like I could continue with Windows 7 and using the latest Turbo Tax just that I couldn't contact Turbo Tax for a problem that would be related to Windows 7.

I could live with that as long as I could install the latest Turbo Tax and could continue receiving updates as they occur.
