Transferring H&R Block and TaxACT Information into TurboTax Desktop for Mac

The TurboTax Mac 2016 CD/Download product supports transferring of tax files from H&R Block at Home and TaxACT.

The file must be a PDF. TurboTax Mac CD/Download won’t accept tax data files such as .t15 from H&R Block, or .ta5 from TaxACT.

As you begin to work on your 2016 return, you’ll have a chance to locate last year’s tax file on your computer and transfer it.
