I changed from the Windows to a Macbook Air. How can I change my Turbotax version?

Please recall that the macbook air doesn't have a CD.

How can i get the software I purchase automatically each year for the Mac, instead?  

Also, can I assume there won't be a problem reading the data files?

Thank you, Brian

Hi Brian!

If you use TurboTax Advantage, you should have downloads of TurboTax Desktop for both Mac and Windows in your account.  You can also change your preference by logging in here (https://turbotax.intuit.com/advantage/signin.jsp) and going to Your Product.

The .tax files are the same on both Mac and Windows and will read on either system.

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.
