if i want to file multiple tax returns on my turbo tax program and create a new user id's for each one is there a limit to how many returns i can file on my computer?

    If you use the Online version you can file one return per UserID.  To do additional returns you would have to create a new UserID and pay for each new return (each UserID creates a new account, you can create multiple accounts). If you prepare another return with the same UserID you used to prepare the original return, the original information will be overwritten.

    If you use the Desktop version you can prepare unlimited returns but there is a limit of how many you can efile.  You get 5 Free Federal efiles (this limit is set by the IRS), after the 5 you would have to mail in the returns.  There is a charge of $19.95 to efile a State return.

    NOTE:  The personal versions of TurboTax are not licensed for professional use, if you need to e-file more than five (5) federal returns or if you are a professional tax preparer, see Intuit's professional tax software, Pro-Series or Lacerte (In order to e-file tax returns professionally for your clients, the IRS requires you to have an Electronic Filing Identification Number (EFIN) which designates you as a professional preparer. To get one, you simply need to register through the IRS.)

      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.
