Turbotax for 2012 won't let me Netfile
what is the exact complete error message you receive when you try to efile ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I just will not allow me to click in the round box for efile

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Where are you. I need my question answered

send me a screen shot of it please.


Usually that would be because you had an error in completing the form


you are using the free online version and you need to pay for that before you can file


you are trying to file a state tax return for a state that does not accept efiling

This is for turbotax for canada that I purchased in a store. It told me there were no errors on the forms.

What next? Quickly please.

click help and then click update


it should let you netfile after the updates are installed

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I will try it.


It still won't let me do it. The update told me I do ot qualify for efile v- useless.


I do not want to be charged for your service.

what is the exact message that you get please ?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I just tells me I am not eligible for Efile as I came back to Canada mid 2012.


Did not get this until I did the update and I have wasted two days on this and am now up against the deadline.


Again it is usless. I'm done with it and do not want a charge for this.

This is the nefile list of restrictions that show what conditions would not allow you to netfile. If you are in one of those categories than it is the Canadian government saying that you can not netfile not me and not intuit. You should however be able to print out the return and mail it in.

Yes but nowhere was I advised to check for updates and the Turbotax software I had did not flag this. It was only when I could not efile that I persued talking to you 2 hours ago that i was advised to get updates.


It is also not easy to know what I print out.


Again Turbotax is not a good product for me.



I don't work for turbo tax. I don't know whether it would be a good product for you or not. But it should be pretty easy to print out the return


when you get to the section for netfile if it wont let you netfile you should be able to switch the filing method


This page shows how to print a copy to mail in
