How do I take a picture of my W-2 in the mobile app?

SOLVEDby TurboTax1316Updated January 10, 2022

You can import your W-2 into the TurboTax mobile app by taking a picture of it. Here’s how:

  1. Open the app and select Wages & Income. Tap the button.
  2. Select Job (W-2) and select Continue on the Let's start with some info from this W-2 screen.
  3. When you see the How do you want to enter your W-2? screen, tap Snap a photo and then Continue.
  4. If asked, give permission to TurboTax to access your camera.
  5. Helpful tips might appear before you see the option to select Now let's snap a photo.
    • Note: Although TurboTax will use your device's camera, the W-2 picture won't be saved with your other device pictures, nor in your TurboTax account.
  6. TurboTax should then automatically import your information, or direct you to type it in if there’s a problem.
