Suddenly can't log into TurboTax Mac (Desktop)

I have TurboTax Deluxe 2014 (Mac) that (after several upgrades) was Home and Business.

Today, the software won't let me log in.  No error messages, it just closes the file.  When I click on the TurboTax icon (once, because it's still running), it asks me to log in again and the cycle begins anew.

If I enter a wrong password, it will tell me the password was wrong so the software appears to be working.  I can log in online and I'm logged in to the same account for posting this question.

Since these are my tax returns, it would be super helpful to actually be able to view them.


Based upon description of your problem being somewhat similar to mine, it may be worthwhile calling the toll free help-line, while working on something else and waiting for a rep to answer.  I spent almost 4 hours trying different options from my end.  Once the rep answered, he was able to rectify the situation.  There's only so much you can do from your end if there is a glitch in the system

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
