How do I get Turbo tax does to recognized my QB

I can help recognize your QuickBooks Online (QBO) data and move them to TurboTax, atenteventsc1.


You need to download a trial version of QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) to perform the migration. Export the data from QBO to QBDT, then from QBDT to TurboTax. 


You can refer to this article  for more information: Export and convert your QuickBooks Online data to QuickBooks Desktop


Once done, follow the steps below to transfer your QuickBooks data into TurboTax:


  1. From the TurboTax File menu, select Import, then click From Accounting Software.
  2. Select QuickBooks [version] and click Continue.
  3.  Follow the onscreen instructions.


Also, I'd recommend using this article to guide you in importing QuickBooks into TurboTax: How do I import QuickBooks data into TurboTax Business?.


If you have any other questions about sending your tax info, I recommend contacting our TurboTax Support team. They have a dedicated community site to answer all the tax and product questions that you have.


On the other hand, you may look for a third-party application that could help export your data to TurboTax. To check for apps compatible with QBO, please visit his link:

Utilize a bookkeeping app to intergate with your QBO as a workaround. You don't need to install QBD to export the TXF file.

How do I get Turbo tax does to recognized my QB

Just wondering if anyone has any information on this.


When I go to export my data (expenses, income, receipts) from Quickbooks self employed, absolutely nothing comes up on Turbo Tax.


The main issue here is that all of my expenses are tracked in Quickbooks self employed, along with receipts.


The income doesn't matter as much because I will be getting 1099s. Am I going to have to manually export all of this data over to Turbo Tax, and if so, what is the point of quickbooks self employed?

Hello there, Zboncak.


Your accounts must be connected for the import to work. This means you log into QuickBooks Self-Employed and either TurboTax Self-Employed or TurboTax Live Self-Employed with the same sign in credentials. Before exporting, make sure your information in QuickBooks is final. You can only send your information over once. 


I'd suggest contacting our QuickBooks Self-Employed Support Team if you're still unable to export your data to TurboTax. 


You can check out this link for more details about QuickBooks Self-Employed annual tax guide.


I'll be here if you need anything else. Take care and have a good one!
