I used to buy a disk when i search for accounts it finds 3 based on my emails and cell number but NONE have my 2017 taxes and say I've never filed with turbotax before.

Where do i get my free copy of turbotax self employed? i am ready to file in quickbookdswhere is the link on the website?  What steps do i do?  there are too many assumptions in your directions.  I need - check this.  X will open.  do this next.  

Where exactly on the website is the link. all i get are warnings that i can only do it once and then i am screwed and have to do everything manually.  which do i pick so the turbo tax files on my computer will be recognized from 2010-2017 and preloaded?  

Send your info to TurboTax if your QuickBooks Self-Employed account is different from your TurboTax account

Need to send info from QuickBooks Self-Employed to TurboTax? Learn how you can do this if you have different login info for each account.

You can send QuickBooks Self-Employed data directly to TurboTax Self-Employed and waive the filing fees (plus one free state). For this to work, both your QuickBooks Self-Employed and TurboTax Self-Employed accounts must share the same username and password.

If you don't use the same username and password, you can:

  • Use your TurboTax account going forward.
  • Use your QuickBooks Self-Employed going forward.
  • Maintain two separate accounts.
Note: Simply changing the login credentials of one account to match the other will not resolve the issue.

Answer

Thanks for visiting us and providing detailed information, michellechase6,

Let me help share information about TurboTax Self-Employed User vs QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE) Bundle User.

If you’re a TurboTax Self-Employed User then you have paid for TurboTax and get QuickBooks Self-Employed free for a year.

For you to be able to get your free QuickBooks Self-Employed account, follow these steps:

  1. Use this link https://selfemployed.intuit.com/turbotax.
  2. Make sure to log in using your TurboTax login credentials when you sign up for the service.

If you’re a QBSE Bundle User then you have paid for QBSE and get TurboTax free for the year. You’ll just need to complete your Tax Checklist and export data to TurboTax.

However, if you find yourself with two different usernames between QuickBooks Self-Employed and TurboTax Self-Employed, you have a couple of options to move forward. These are:

  1. Use your TurboTax account going forward – this means that you’ll be creating a new QuickBooks Self-Employed account using the login credentials you use with TurboTax.
  2. Use your QuickBooks Self-Employed account going forward – this means that you just simply export your data from QuickBooks Self-Employed and we’ll automatically create the TurboTax account for you.
  3. Maintain separate accounts.

To help you decide on which specific options suits your situation, I invite you to contact our QuickBooks Self-Employed Support. They'll be able to pull up your account in a secure environment using one of their tools to verify your account.

Keep me posted on how things go, you able to file your taxes is my top priority. Have a great day!

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.
