How do I switch to Forms Mode in the TurboTax for Mac software?

SOLVEDby TurboTaxTurboTax Mac135Updated January 24, 2022

To switch to Forms Mode, open your return, and then select the Forms icon from the TurboTax menu (or select View, then Go to Forms).

The Federal Information Worksheet will display and all the forms in your return will be listed on the left side. Simply select a form to open it.

To switch back to the interview, select the EasyStep icon from the menu, or choose Go to EasyStep from the View menu.


  • In the interview, you can also view the underlying tax form by selecting Show Form at the bottom of your screen.
  • It's OK to switch to Forms Mode if you want to look at a form or two, but constantly switching back and forth between Forms Mode and the interview has been known to cause problems and data corruption.
