Frequently asked questions

Eventually, for more complex tax situations, you may need additional documents or detailed financial information. But since we save your return as you go, you can always come back later to add these details anytime.

TurboTax works like an interview—we ask you easy–to–answer questions about your life that affect your tax situation (i.e., Are you married? Do you have kids?) and fill in all the right tax forms behind the scenes.

Our team of tax experts keeps our products up-to-date with the latest tax laws, so we know exactly what to ask. Your answers tell us which deductions and credits to look for, and what to ask next, so that we can find every dollar you deserve.

For example, if you tell us you have children, we'll help you claim child care expenses as a deduction. And if you're ever unsure about how to answer a question, we're here to help.
