SOLVEDby TurboTax68Updated October 20, 2021

On recent versions of Windows or Mac OS X, you can use TurboTax Online through most web browsers such as Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari, and so on. If you're using an older version of an operating system, consult the following list to ensure that TurboTax Online can be used through the versions of the browsers you have installed on your computer.

Important: If you disabled cookies or JavaScript in your browser, you need to enable them. If you want to print your tax return, you need Adobe Reader or a suitable alternative to view and print PDF files.

Although Microsoft Windows users can use TurboTax Online through all browser versions specified in the list below, to protect yourself from security vulnerabilities, consider using only the latest version of browsers that are actively supported by their publisher.

  • Google Chrome 73 or later
  • Mozilla Firefox 66 or later
  • Microsoft Edge 18 or higher

Note: Microsoft no longer provides support or updates for Windows 7 or 8 users.

Microsoft no longer supports Windows XP and Vista. Makers of commonly used web browsers no longer support their browsers on these operating systems. While you might be able to use TurboTax Online on Windows XP or Vista by downloading and installing the last available version of Mozilla Firefox for these operating systems, do so at your own risk. Accessing the Internet from outdated operating systems and browsers exposes your computer to serious security vulnerabilities.

Mac users can use any of the following browsers to access TurboTax Online:

  • Google Chrome 88 or earlier
  • Apple Safari 14.0.2 or earlier
  • Mozilla Firefox 78 or earlier

Note: Apple no longer provides support or updates for Mojave 10.14 users.
