    According to the TurboTax article here

    the answer seems to be "Yes."

    "You can transfer your 2010 H&R Block at Home tax return (either from the .t10 tax data file or the PDF file) to the 2011 version of TurboTax for Windows software.

    The following information transfers from the H&R Block .t10 data file to TurboTax:

        Federal Information Worksheet - Taxpayer and spouse name, address, social security number, birth date, and filing status as well as dependent(s) name(s), social security number(s), and birth date(s).
        Form 2441 Child and Dependent Care Expenses - Care provider name, address, and EIN/SSN number.
        Form W-2 - Employer name, address, EIN/control numbers, state and local names.
        Schedule B - Interest and dividend payer name.
        Schedule C and Schedule F - Required business designations plus prior-year inventory and cost amounts. Business use of home required information plus carryover amounts.
        Schedule E - Property type, location and special other expense designations.
        Schedule K-1 Partnership, K-1 S Corporation, and K-1 Estates and Trusts - Name, ID, taxpayer, spouse, PTP and foreign designations.
        Retirement and Pension Information - Taxpayer/spouse designations; payer name, address, account number and ID; distributions codes, state and local designations.
        Carryover Worksheet - Prior year AGI, tax liability, overpayment credit, itemized deductions, and AMT. Short term and long term carryovers, investment expenses disallowed, general business credits, section 179 disallowed and IRA basis and excess contributions."


    However, the above is a little vague in details.  Before doing the switch I'd suggest getting in touch with Turbo Tax directly and asking them specifically about the depreciation issue.  You'd think it would work but it would be a problem if it didn't.

    Go here http://turbotax.intuit.com/support/ click on "Contact Us" and select an appropriate topic and you'll then get options to call or chat.  TT is available 8:00am - 5:00pm Pacific (Monday - Friday)

      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.
