Can We load turbo tax to two computers from the one CD? We have filed in past years for ourselves and our son. He now has his own computer.

my son has his own computer (MAC). We would like to take advantage of being able to submit up to 5 returns, but don't know if we can do 1 from his computer and ours from our computer

    The TurboTax End User License Agreement (EULA) for the Basic, Deluxe, Premier, and Home & Business CD/Download versions allows you to install TurboTax on all computers owned by you. You may use your TurboTax software to prepare tax returns for you and your immediate family.

    Basically that would be acceptable.  I doubt if registration will come up.  Shouldn't be a problem as long as he Only does his own return an None for anyone else.

    • Note: If your CD is for Windows, it will not work on your son's Mac computer.
    • The CD is a Hybrid and should install on the Mac and any Windows computer.
    • Oops! Thanks for pointing that out, Doc! I should've double checked before I said anything.
    • Don't I know the feeling, happens to all of us.

    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.
