, Answering FAQ'sTurboTax Employee
If you purchased TurboTax directly from us, your software is already registered.
If you purchased your software from a retail store (Walmart, Costco, Best Buy, etc.) just open your TurboTax program and you'll be prompted to register if you haven't already done so.
Do I have to register my software?
No, but registering your TurboTax program ensures you get the latest information, including tax law updates and product enhancements. It also activates your warranty.
When you register, you can specify your contact preferences at the bottom of the registration screen. But if you choose not to register, that's OK – just click Continue whenever the registration prompt appears.
