Opening TAX files
Did your computer fail to open a TAX file? We explain what TAX files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your TAX files.
What is a TAX file?
Files that contain the .tax file extension are most commonly used by the TurboTax tax preparation software program that is distributed by Intuit Inc.
There are a variety of TurboTax products available including the TurboTax Deluxe and the TurboTax Premier versions of the software. The tax returns that are created when a user does their taxes with these software products use the .tax file extension. Users can access their previous years' tax returns by opening these TAX files.
Some financial applications allow a user to import their tax information by importing the TAX files that have been created with these software programs.
Software that will open, convert or fix TAX files
Try a universal file viewer
In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
