  1. Open your return in TurboTax.
  2. Under Wages & Income, select Start or Revisit next to Wages and Salaries (W-2).
  3. After entering the employer ID from your W-2, select Snap a photo with your phone on the How would you like to add your W-2? screen.
  4. Open your phone’s camera, hold it over the QR code, and tap the link that appears.
