Can I export my QB online Simple Start data to TurboTax Business?

Hi @jands1922,


At the moment, there isn't a direct way to export your QuickBooks Online (QBO) data to TurboTax.


A workaround I can offer is for you to convert your QBO company to QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT). From there, you can transfer your data to TurboTax. 


First thing you need to do is download a trial version of QBDT.


Once that's taken cared of, follow these steps:


  1. Go to the Gear icon at the upper right. 
  2. Select Export Data under the Tools column. 
  3. Choose your reason, then click Continue.
  4. Click Learn more under Moving to QuickBooks Desktop section, then Learn more again on the Download company data section.
  5. Hit Install ActiveX Control Now, then click Get Started.
  6. Select Install for the ActiveX control, then choose Install ActiveX Control Now to confirm the installation.
  7. Click Continue, then choose the date you want to export
  8. Choose Continue.
  9. Enter the necessary information and hit Continue again.
