How do I report a bug via email?

I believe I understand the underlying problem and this is the second year I have noticed it. My OS is windows 7 Enterprise. When I install as an ordinary user and provide the administrator password the installation completes. If I don't close TurboTax at that point and I continue to transfer the files from the previous year, TurboTax does not find them in the user's home because it is looking in the administrator's home. It looks like TurboTax has kept the administrator's privileges and if I open a new file, TurboTax writes into the administrator's home. If I close TurboTax and than reopen it, TurboTax finds the previous years files in the user's home but no longer finds the one created in the administrator's home. This bug should be fixed. I don't know if it happens with other versions of Windows or with other operating systems. This is a serious error with security implications. The case id is # xxxxxxxxx


Thank you for pointing this out. I've passed this on to the engineering team.

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.
