How do I link my TurboTax to QB self employed if they are different accounts?


Thank you for posting, chan.williams78.

I'm here to provide you the options to link your TurboTax and QuickBooks Self-Employed account.

To merge your TurboTax Self-Employed (TTSE) and QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE), both accounts must have the same username and password for each account. 

Please take note that changing the login credentials of one account to match the other will not do the trick. 

If you're trying to link your accounts to export your data from QBSE to TTSE to file your taxes, you may choose an account that you'll keep and then create a new account for the other using the same credentials. 

From here, you can reach to our Product Support team to help you in migrating your data from the old account to the new one in a safe and secure environment. Here's how to contact QuickBooks Self-Employed Support. Once done, you can now link both accounts. Here's send your tax info to TurboTax article for detailed instructions.

That should information should help you link the account. If you have follow-up questions about this topic, let me know by leaving a comment below. I'm always glad to help in any way I can. Have a good 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.
