How well does TurboTax work with importing from Interactive Brokers

    Cancel
    You can only import a TXF file using the Turbo Tax desktop (disc based) product.

    Here's a quote from the Interactive Brokers site:

    "View Form 8949 Worksheet using TurboTax
    Log into Account Management and choose Tax Forms (Report Management). Select TurboTax TXF Format from the drop down menu and click View Report. Note that there is a limit of 3,000 transactions using this format.

    Also note that the TXF import is only available on the TurboTax desktop product.

    Note: Currently, TurboTax only supports reported wash sale adjustments and not other adjustments. Accounts with non-supported adjustments will be unable to download the Form 8949 Worksheet in TXF format."

    I hope this helps!

      If you are over the 3000 limit, you can use TXF Creator to convert IB Form 8949 worksheet (CSV file) to TXF file. Then you can use TXF Reader to reduce the number of records in the generated TXF file below 3000.

        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.
