How do I add my spouse's tax return while I’m preparing my own?

That depends on the TurboTax product you’re using.

If you’re using the CD/Download version of TurboTax, you can add your spouse’s return and create a coupled return at any time while you’re preparing your own. If you’re using TurboTax Online, you’ll have to start a new return and indicate in the beginning that you want to prepare a coupled return.

  1. If you’re in the EasyStep interview, select Forms at the top of your screen.
  2. In Forms view, open the View menu and select Personal Information.
  3. On the Personal Information window, check the box for Process spouse’s return as well, even if you’re living common-law.
  4. Then, follow the on-screen prompts to enter your spouse’s personal information, and select OK.
  5. To return to the EasyStep interview, select EasyStep at the top of your screen. Follow the prompts to enter your and your spouse’s information throughout the interview.
