SOLVEDby TurboTaxTurboTax Online1149Updated January 10, 2022

You can take a picture via the mobile app, which will then upload to TurboTax Online. Here's how:

  1. Download the mobile app on the iOS or Android device you want to use to snap the picture.
  2. Open the app and sign in.
  3. Tap Wages & Income then Continue or Review/Edit or Pick up where you left off.
  4. Select Job (W-2), select Work on my W-2, and select Continue.
    • If you've already entered a W-2, select Add another W-2.
  5. On the Let's start with some info from this W-2 screen, select Continue. You don't need to enter the Box - b info.
  6. Select Snap a photo then Continue.
  7. Make sure your W-2 is lying flat on a plain, well-lit surface. We'll direct you on how to get the best photo and automatically snap the picture for you.
    • This picture won't be saved on your device, nor in your TurboTax account.
  8. TurboTax will automatically import your information, or direct you to type it in if there’s a problem. You'll have the opportunity to make changes if needed.

You can continue in the mobile app or sign into TurboTax Online where your information will now be uploaded.
