Please correct a mistake in TurboTax Home Business 2017 Mac re: TXF files

TurboTax Home & Business 2017 (Mac)

 

In the "Import Business Information" section. The help for that says:

 

"You can import your business information from the 2016, 2017, or 2018 versions of Quicken or QuickBooks."

 

"Where do you want to import from?   From Tax Exchange Format (TXF) file.   ... refer to your financial software program's user guide for information on creating TXF files."

 

I am using QuickBooks 2016 (Mac), but I *cannot* export a TXF file. I wasted an hour looking for how to do that as well as 15 minutes with TurboTax help (very friendly, I might add) and I was finally told that a QB 2016 (Mac) file must be opened by QB Win to save a TXF. Please update the instructions to say that QuickBooks 2016 (Mac) will *not* export a TXF file.

We do include that information on the Windows version, within the "Learn More" link on the Business income and Expense screen.  I apologize it isn't made clear on the Mac version.  Thank you for the feedback as we always strive towards improvement.
