How to connect online account and purchased disk copy?

I started doing my taxes using the free online version. Midway trough I realized I needed to purchase the Premier version. I later purchased a copy at a local store and have installed it onto my computer, but I can't find how to import the work I did online to my desktop version. I was nearly finished, is there a way to transfer the data over without having to restart from the beginning?

Yes. Go back to into your online account and save the tax file to your computer.

  • Sign into your account and select the 'take me to my return' button
  • Select Tax Tools, Tools
  • Select 'Save your 2017 return to your computer'

Note the saved location on your computer, then open your desktop version and open the saved file.
