Taxes: Headache #422: TurboTax Deluxe 2002 Mac Version does not see 2001 Windows Data.
I hate Taxes!

Apple's rendevous is cool. It lets me look at my PC files, over the network, with my Mac. The reps from Intuit told me that I could import last years tax return from my PC into my Mac using TurboTax Deluxe 2002. I tried it. It doesn't work.


Here's what they say on the TurboTax web site:
When attempting to transfer last years tax file into 2002 TurboTax for Mac, the file is not visible in the transfer window.

This sometimes occurs when transferring from Windows or a prior Mac OS to an operating system using OS 10. To transfer your prior year return, do the following:

Insert the TurboTax for Mac CD.
Double click the installer titled TurboTax Deluxe for OS 8/9. This will launch Classic Mode in OS 10 if it is available.
If Classic Mode is not available you will have to transfer using a system with OS 8.x (above OS 8.1) or using 9.x.
After installation, open the classic version of TurboTax and attempt the transfer again. The prior year tax file should now be visible.
Note: To launch the OS 8/9 version of TurboTax, you need to [Get Info] on the Turbo Tax OS 8/9 file and click the 'Open with Classic Environment' check box. Then the application will open.

This suggested fix made no difference to me. I still can't see last years tax return.
