transfer last year from different computer

The computer I used for Turbo Tax last year is having issues, so I got a new computer.   Can I transfer last year's tax return information if I email myself the pdf of last year returns?

    You can email a copy of your return to yourself but that is not secure and all your information is in your return.  To transfer your prior year information you need your .tax2010 file.  You can copy that file to a flash key and then copy the file to your new computer.  The default location for the file is in the TurboTax directory off of the My Documents directory.  You can copy your .tax2010 to that directory on your new computer.

    If you used the Online version for your prior year return you don't need to copy a file to your new computer. In order for your previous years tax information to transfer you must be signed into the 2011 product with the exact UserID you used to prepare your 2010 return, then the online version will automatically transfer your previous year's data.

    If you are signed into this years product with the same UserID as you used in 2010, try clearing your return and starting over, click on the Home tab, then under We can help you...choose Clear your 2011 return and start over, after that the information should transfer

    You can get a list of your UserID by your email address

      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.
