[SOLVED] Unable to import TD Ameritrade 1099-B transactions

I found an easy solution for importing 1099-B transactions from TD Ameritrade into my tax return.  I tried H&R Block and TurboTax without success.  Then I tried taxACT and the import was really easy.  Plus, you can just use a CSV file that you download from TD Ameritrade if you need to make any modifications before the import.  It is also much cheaper than TT and H&R Block.

This is not a sales pitch.  I just think it's hilarious that TurboTax drives customers to the competitor like this.

    • So, I have the txf file with all my transactions from TD AMeritrade, but how do I upload it into TurboTax?
    • This information from whoever has been so incredibly useful to me, as i have spent hours and hours of frustration every single year. And this year, it has reached the max. I cannot deal with this any more. Correctly said - it is hilarious that TT drivers customers to competitors " but more - what a shame that a program like TT creates such tremendous inconvinience to its customers! How cannot they get their act together? ( to help investors important information)

    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.
