Can I transfer last year's PDF into TurboTax Desktop 2023?

SOLVEDby TurboTax550Updated January 30, 2024
  • You can transfer basic information if your 2022 PDF is a 1040 return generated through TurboTax, H&R Block, or TaxACT software (Form 1040-SR is not supported for PDF transfer) A tax data file will provide a more complete import.
  • Be aware that in some cases TurboTax won't be able to read the PDF, for example, if it's password-protected or is a scanned copy of a PDF instead of an actual PDF file.
  • TurboTax Desktop only supports PDFs from 2022


  1. Sign into your TurboTax account to access returns for 2023.
  2. Choose New Tax Return from the File menu.
  3. Select Start a New Return.
  4. When you get to the transfer screen, select Browse.
  5. Navigate to your PDF file, select Open, and follow any onscreen instructions.
