TurboTax’s official website is easily accessible from any web browser. Visitors can access most areas of the site without creating accounts, such as Tools & Tips, Help and Products & Pricing. Other features include tax calculators, form finders and tax refund estimators and a blog with various tax topics.
For previous TurboTax customers who want to check the status of a refund, retrieve account information, or view and print a tax return, account creation is required. Creating an account with TurboTax allows pre-filling of information from one year’s return into the taxpayer’s return the next year, streamlining the process of filing taxes.
