Solution: Enable TLS encryption in Internet Explorer

  1. In some cases, a third party application on your computer might turn off TLS encryption. Complete the following steps to turn them back on:
  2. Open Internet Explorer.
  3. Open the Tools menu or, depending on your version of Internet Explorer, click the gear icon in the top, right-hand corner of the screen.
    The Internet Options window appears.
  4. Click the Advanced tab.
  5. If you're on Windows XP, select the Use TLS 1.0 checkbox. If you are using Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 10, select TLS 1.2.
  6. Click Apply.
  7. Restart TurboTax.

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.
