Previous Returns

is there anyway to upload previous years' returns to TurboTax online.  I have used TurboTax since 2000 but have always purchased the CD and have kept the returns stored on my hard drive.  How can TurboTax do a yeat-to-year comparison if it doesn't have the older data?

    • All my previous returns are on my hard drive on my computer.  This is the first year I am doing it online.  What I want to do is upload those previous years' returns so that I can have access online to all of them.  Is that possible?

      • I have the same question and the answers provided do not offer the solution.  I've been using the software on my computer in the past and using online in 2011.  I want to import the data from my 2010 from my computer to online.  How is this done???  The answer provided by the rep gave information on how to import 1040s, 1099s, etc from institutions.

      People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

      1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
      2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
      3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
      4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
      5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
