How do I password-protect my tax file in the TurboTax CD/Download software?

  1. Open the tax return you want to password-protect.
  2. Go to the File menu and select Password (on Mac select Encrypt).
  3. Fill out the information in the pop-up window and then select Add Password.

Because your password information is stored locally (on your system), we are unable to help with forgotten passwords. Make sure you store it in a safe place, such as a password manager program.

The steps to remove your password are the same, except in Step 3 just select Remove Password.
