In the online edition of TurboTax, how do I quickly jump to different sections of my tax return?

The quickest way to jump to different sections of your tax return is to use the Find button with magnifying glass icon tool ( Magnifying glass icon if you're viewing on a smartphone or tablet) located in the TurboTax menu.


  • The Find tool becomes visible on the first page you see when you sign in to TurboTax. You need to be inside a tax return.
  • If you start a new tax return, the tool is visible only after you complete at least the Intro (personal information) and Profile steps.

When you select Find, a dialog appears and displays a list of steps within your tax return that you can jump to. Type a keyword in the box (such as RRSP, T4, donation) to view steps that match the keyword. From the list, select the step you want to go to, then select Go. Alternatively, you can scroll through the entire list to find the step you want to go to.

Let’s say you want to jump to the section related to dependants. Below are the steps to jump to the dependant’s section in your tax return:

  1. Select Find button with magnifying glass icon (if viewing on a mobile device, select Magnifying glass icon ) from the TurboTax menu.

The Find dialog appears:

2. On the Find dialog, type dependant in the box.
The dialog displays a list of items, one of which is Dependants:

3. Select Dependants from the list, then select Go. TurboTax Online takes you to the section in your tax return that is related to dependants.

If you're using TurboTax for tax year 2016 and the Find tool isn't visible on the page you’re on, move through the pages until you get to a page that has the tool visible.
