I have a 2016 return that I forgot to create a pdf file for. I still have the .tt16 file. Is there a way to extract the file and create a pdf version?

unfortunately I have uninstalled the 2016 version from my PC


To create a PDF from your .tt16 file, you'll need to reinstall your 2016 version of TurboTax. If you have retained your installation code, you can use it to reinstall your copy from the "previous years" link below.

You can access the CD/download edition of TurboTax products for the current tax year using the links under the product images below.

Installation key code: To complete the installation, you’ll need to enter the installation Key Code you received when you purchased TurboTax.

  • Online purchase: The installation key will be emailed to you.
  • In store purchase: You’ll find the installation key in the TurboTax CD envelope.

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.
