If I do more than one return using Turbo Tax can the others see my info?

I would like to share my TT program with a friend. When the friend does his return on his computer will he have access to my personal info and be able to see my return?

    If you are thinking of handing your CD over to the friend and having him install the program on his computer, I'm not sure if that will work, as you've already registered it.  Understand, I don't know that it *won't* work on his computer, I just wouldn't be surprised if it didn't.

    If the program does install on his computer then he shouldn't be able to see your tax return.  Each tax return is stored on the computer under a separate file and your return is on your hard drive on your computer.

    If the program doesn't install on his computer and he wants to fill out his return on your computer you can always password protect your tax return and he can do the same with his tax return.  That way neither of you can see the other's 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.
