Please go to the Apple logo on the upper left of the screen, go to About This Mac (DO NOT Select More Info), and tell me the Version (under Mac OS X), the Processor and the Memory, it is all right there.

Im afraid you can't run that version of Turbotax on that model Mac, see system requirements here:

Minimum System Requirements

Processor Intel-based Processor (64-bit required for Mac OS 10.6.8)
Operating system

Mac OS X v10.6.8 or later
Mac OS X v10.7.5 or later
Mac OS X v10.8.0 or later

Even though you may be able to install Snow Leopard 10.6.8 the processor must be 64 bit which the Core Duo is not, see below. Sorry.
