How do I import QuickBooks data into TurboTax Business?

SOLVEDby TurboTax397Updated 1 week ago

QuickBooks Desktop data can be imported directly into TurboTax Business.

  • QuickBooks should be installed on the same local drive as TurboTax (not networked) and needs to be registered.
  • You'll need QuickBooks Administrator access.
  • The QuickBooks company file (.qbw filename extension) must be in single-user mode and should've been opened at least once on the computer you're using to import (no need to leave it open during the import).
  • QuickBooks Online data must first be exported to QuickBooks Desktop before it can be imported into TurboTax Business. Refer to QuickBooks Online support for help (also see the export limitations).
  • QuickBooks for Mac data must be converted to Windows before it can be imported (instructions).
  • Be sure to update your QuickBooks data before importing, so that your books match your tax return.
    • If you already imported, you can re-import updated QuickBooks info by selecting Replace whenever prompted.


Right after you begin a new return in TurboTax Business, we'll ask if you used QuickBooks in 2023. Answer Yes and follow the onscreen instructions.

If you've already gone past that screen, select Import, then From QuickBooks from the File menu.
