How do I import W2 data


    It is showing you are in the Free Edition, it does not offer the option to import W2 information you would have to upgrade to a paid version Basic or above.  If you upgrade see the following on how to import your W2

    If your W2 information is not available yet (payroll providers have until January 31st) or your payroll provider is not partnered with TurboTax the program will take you to a screen to manually enter your W2 information.  You can try back later or ask your payroll person when the information will be available to import.

    • I would think the free edition should offer the import link also. Why should we be penalized when our employer is using the paycheck recording portion and our w-2 is available through it.
    TurboTax Online Free Edition and TurboTax Business do not support data import.

    • I will have to pay for the state return anyway.

    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.
