Am I using TurboTax Online or the CD/Download software?

It's easy to tell which one you're using:

  • If you go to a website where you have to enter your User ID and password to open your return, you're using TurboTax Online.



  • If you click an icon on your desktop to open TurboTax, you're using the TurboTax CD/Download software.



  • If you're using Free Edition or Freedom Edition, you're definitely in TurboTax Online.



  • If you get notifications that TurboTax just downloaded an update, you're using the TurboTax CD/Download software.



  • If you're working on your corporate, partnership, estate, or trust return, you're using the TurboTax CD/Download software.
