Why does TurboTax for Mac keep saying there are updates when I check for updates?
TurboTax for Mac automatically adds the current tax form updates whenever you select Check for Updates from the TurboTax menu. This creates the illusion that updates are available even if you're on the latest release.
For this reason, don't check for the latest update from the TurboTax menu. Instead, quit and reopen the program. If you're not on the latest release, the program will automatically download it.
If following the steps provided above do not work, your can force a download of the most recent update. This applies to TurboTax for Mac that was installed from a CD or download and for the TurboTax 2015 app available in iTunes.
- With TurboTax open, click on the TurboTax menu.
- On your keyboard, hold down the Option key.
- This will change the Check for Updates menu option to Download Latest Updates...
- Clicking this option will force the most recent update for TurboTax to download and install.
