How to Import to Quicktax from Desktop2019?

Easy Step shows $0 for all income and expense items, with no account names.  System asks me to select a file & Quickbooks opens up with the only company account we have, but it doesn't seem to do anything after that.  

Alternatively, when trying using forms & importing a file it shows no  linked accounts. 

We have not previously used the import feature for prior year tax returns (Home & Business Quicktax) as our Quickbooks version was too old.  Specifically upgraded to Desktop 2019 to save time doing the taxes, but so far it's taking me more time :(


Hello, ldberg,

If you have installed QuickBooks before installing TurboTax, you should be able to import your data. It's a requirement to set up all the connections required for the QuickBooks TaxLink.

I recommend contacting QuickTax/TurboTax Support, they can help you import your data. You can reach them here:

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support 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.
