The easiest way is to email the file to yourself from old computer and receive file on new computer. The TT files will be <filename>.tax2011

The other way is to use a thumb drive in the USB port to copy file(s) from old to new.
  • I've already done that.  But now Turbo Tax online won't let me get BACK to the import part.
  • Yep, same here, Turbo Tax online won't let me get BACK to the import part.
  • Make that three...
  • my computes crashed.  Can you send the 3011 files so I can work the 3012 tax?

When you are in the area where it asks you to enter information for your tax form, click on the Home link on the left side of the page.  If you haven't started yet, there should be a link in the middle of the page where it says
"We can also help you:If that is not available, there you should see

Click on the last link to start over and you should see the option to transfer last year's information.

    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.
