Tax Exchange Format

This is a standard data file format created for various accounting tools, financial programs, and spreadsheet software. These TXF files are also called tax exchange format files and are generated by accounting applications like the TurboTax software from Intuit, Inc.

A .txf file is primarily used to share tax information across multiple workbooks, accounting projects, and financial tools with the TXF file format support. These TXF files are encoded in plain text format and may contain layout attributes like tabular templates, equations, formulas, and text formatting properties.

These .txf files may also contain metadata details related to an accounting project or a financial document, which was created using the software that generated the TXF file.

The files can be opened and viewed using the TurboTax software from Intuit Inc., among other accounting and financial applications. TurboTax can also be used to edit the content of these TXF files.
