Can I transfer from a PDF into TurboTax Online?
Yes. You can easily transfer your 2015 return as a PDF to get a head start on your 2016 return. There is no fee to do this.
You can transfer PDFs from other online tax prep sites (Credit Karma, TaxAct, etc.), tax services (H&R Block, etc.) and even an accountant or CPA.
As you start your 2016 return, you’ll have a chance to transfer your 2015 PDF, eliminating the need to type in a lot of the details yourself. We’ll ask if anything has changed from last year (Marital status? Have you moved? Had a new child? etc.). Then as you work through each section of your 2016 return, you’ll have the opportunity to add, remove or update any items based on your 2016 taxes.
- The PDF needs to be your 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ.
- The program accepts PDFs from a range of providers but not all of them.
In certain situations, the program might not accept a PDF, such as when it’s password-protected, a scan of a hard copy rather than an electronic PDF, and certain other cases. If this happens, don’t worry, we’ll guide you through typing in your info.
