Can you use Turbotax on two computers?

bella_mom 34 January 17, 2008 at 10:20 AM
Can you buy the software and use on two different computers? I was planning on buying the software to use for myself and a couple family members and another friend is buying to use for herself and some family members.

We both want to do on our own home computers. Instead of buying two softwares we were wondering if we buy one can we download to one computer and then download on a different one.

TIA

Just a quick answer:
Can you do it - YES
Is it Legal - NO

You must have a license for each computer you install it on.

actually turbo tax is very unique in this.

You can install it on as many computers as you want, however usually when you PURCHASE TT, it comes with a coupon for a free online filing for your federal taxes.
That coupon is a one time use coupon.

You can of course simply use the online version oif TT and just pay when you file.

Thats the thing about TT, you actually pay for it when you file.
And thus the reason the retail box comes with the coupon inside to offset the cost.

What if you don't file online, but rather run all the data and then mail it in?

i actuallly had a similar question about tax software siince i have never used it....

can my fiance and i both file separately and do the e-file with one copy of the software? if the coupon is a 1 time use, can i use it for me, and then print hers and mail it, or other way around so i dont end up on the couch laugh out loud?

i have no problem buying 2 copies if thats what i have to do....

thanks foor the info - though is it possible to pay a smalll fee for another e-file, or would i have to buy a second copy? dont want the wifey mad :-)....plus turbutax comes with the state version as well, correct? i want to e-file the state...

i know, lots of newb questions - my first year doing my own taxes, as i just graduated college in may and i reallly cant see myself wasting the money on going to someone....honestly, i am even considering just doing it myself with the friggen forms...since its my first time, it may be a smart thing to do just to get myself used to it, and to understand some of the meanings and things involved.

From the Intuit Turbo Tax website:
With TurboTax Desktop, you can e-file up to five (5) federal returns.

This limit is set by the IRS.

You can also e-file up to three (3) state returns for each federal return. State returns in excess of this limit will need to be printed and mailed. See Print and Mail Your Return.

With TurboTax Online, you can file one federal and three state returns per user ID and password. You can file additional federal returns as long as you use a unique Taxpayer Identification Number and a separate TurboTax Online user ID and password for each return.

If you need to e-file more than five (5) federal returns, or if you are a professional tax preparer, please visit www.ProSeries.com or www.LacerteSoftware.com.
Turbo Tax customer support contact. You might try TINA (Turbo Tax Interactive Agent), their online chat support service.
