How do I open my tax return in the TurboTax software I installed?

SOLVEDby TurboTaxTurboTax Windows4830Updated January 06, 2022

After launching the TurboTax program, you can either:

  • Click Continue under the return you want to open, or
  • Select Open Tax Return from the File menu (Windows) or TurboTax menu (Mac), browse to the location of your .tax or tax data file (not the PDF), select it, and then select Open.

Please note that you'll need to use the same tax-year TurboTax program to open your tax file. For example, use TurboTax 2021 to open your 2021 return, not your 2020 or 2019 return.
