Have a Tax Question? Ask a Tax Expert
Thank you for contacting me about your Tax issue. I will work hard to help you understand the issue clearly.
The TurboTax issues with MN state returns have been resolved. They affected very few taxpayers in very specific situations.
If you have stored your 2011 data file on your computer, there is no way for TurboTax to restore it. The information is not stored elsewhere or in TurboTax's filing center.
If you did not keep a backup paper copy, you can always visit the IRS website and order a transcript of your prior return for free (www.irs.gov)
You will need to start your 2012 tax return from scratch since there is no carryover data if you do not have the 2011 data file.
