What is a TAX file?
A .TAX file is a TurboTax Return file.
Files that contain the .tax file extension are most commonly used by the TurboTax tax preparation software program that Intuit Inc makes.
There are various TurboTax products available, including the TurboTax Deluxe and the TurboTax Premier versions of the software. The tax returns 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. In addition, some financial applications allow a user to import their tax information by importing the TAX files that have been created with these software programs.
