I am trying to file together with my new spouse. Where I can request this as I have entered his profile info but it is not generating the forms and slips for him.


Here is how to add a spouse's tax return while preparing your 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.

If you're using the CD/Download version of TurboTax

  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.

If you're using TurboTax Online

  1. Log in to TurboTax Online and select Start a new return.
  2. Select the TurboTax Online product you wish to use and select Continue.
  3. Follow the prompts to enter your personal information. At Marital status, select Married or Living common-law.
  4. Select Yes at Do you want to prepare your returns together.
  5. Follow the prompts to enter your and your spouse’s information throughout the interview.

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.
