How do I delete a tax return that was created in the TurboTax for Windows CD/Download software?

SOLVEDby TurboTaxTurboTax Windows88Updated July 27, 2021

By default, TurboTax saves tax data and PDF files in the Documents (or My Documents) > TurboTax folder on your PC.

To move the return to your PC's Recycle Bin, browse to Documents > TurboTax, select the file, and tap Delete on your keyboard (you can also right-click the file and choose Delete). There may be a corresponding PDF file which you can also delete.

To permanently remove it from your system, delete the file from your Recycle Bin.
