can i file someone elses taxes

can ifile some eleses taxes using the same e-mail address?
    Yes, you can use the same email address for someone's return to have their notification sent to BUT you cannot use the same UserID to prepare another return.
    • OK, so I did file under same email - first was completed but not transmitted due to waiting on a form (2/9 form should be ready - something about enviro friendly cars) So a few days later I completed daughters return (same email - diff password)  Now when I try to log into mine (just takes me to hers!) I cant find it at all. Did it seriously overwrite it?? Do I have to start all over again?
    no, you would need to create a new account. Otherwise you will overwrite the existing return.
    The desktop version would allow you to prepare more than 1 return without overwriting.
    • I do multiple taxes on my email address as long as everyone each has there own sign in name...
    ThinkImScrewed:  Did you use the same UserID for both returns? If you did then your daughter's return overwrote yours.  You can use the same email address on a return BUT you cannot use the same UserID.  For the online version of TurboTax, 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.

      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.
