In TurboTax Online, how do I transfer my information (personal details, carry forward amounts, etc.) from my previous year's tax return?

Transfer from a prior year is done at the start of a new return. If you’ve already started a TurboTax Online return, you can still transfer your information by starting a new one.

Here’s how to transfer information from your prior tax return:

  1. Visit the TurboTax website.
  2. Enter your credentials (the same as you used last year) and select Sign In.
  3. On the Great to see you again! screen, select Start a new return from the menuthen choose your preferred TurboTax Online product, and select Continue.
  4. On the How did you do your taxes last year? screen, select TurboTax Online, then Continue.
  5. On the Hello again! We're so glad you're back screen, select Yes, then Continue.
  6. Follow the on-screen instructions to proceed through the file transfer process.
  1. Visit the TurboTax website.
  2. If you have a TurboTax Online account, follow the prompts to sign in; your credentials are the same as you used last year. If you don’t have an account, follow the prompts to create one and then sign in.
  3. If you already have a TurboTax Online account: After you sign in, on the Great to see you again! screen, select Start a new return from the menu. Choose the TurboTax Online product you’d like to use and then select Start.
