Customer Question
How do I open...

How do I open my copy of last years (2016) turbo tax return saved on my computer to review. Every time I open it up, it wants to update to the 2017 program I have loaded on my computer. I just want to review one form as it was prepared last year.

Accountant's Assistant: A combination of financial issues and software stuff sounds like a recipe for needing our Expert. You are in the right place. Is there anything else important you think the Financial Software Technician should know?

No. just how to open and review existing 2016 information without having to transfer to 2017 program.

Hi. Great Question. Quick Question - do you have the 2016 Turbo Tax program on your computer? If you do, I would open the program and select print - it will take you to where you can preview your return and save it as a pdf.
