Developer: Intuit
File type: TurboTax Tax Return
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .tax. Files with the file extension .tax can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .tax files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .tax file?

The TAX file type is used by TurboTax, a tax-filing software created by Intuit Inc. The software is solely used for the creation of US-based tax returns and cannot be used internationally. There are Windows and Mac versions available. It can be used for both federal and state income tax returns. The resulting forms are subsequently validated and prepared for submission either online or via post. Previously this software was developed by Chipsoft until they later sold it to Intuit. The software uses a simple step-by-step methodology that means even people not familiar with tax returns can easily complete their individual or small business tax returns using the software. It is also fully supported and the developers are happy to answer general tax related questions in addition to those pertaining to the usage of their software The file extension is often prep ended with a year - for example “.tax08” or the more common “.tax2008” for tax returns in the year 2008.

Intuit TurboTax Deluxe

Intuit TurboTax Deluxe

Turbo Tax Deluxe is software that was developed by Intuit which is being used for tax preparation. The software works by asking its user several questions in regard to the user’s credits, income, family situation, changes made in tax situation among the others then the software will search its database for the credits and deductions so that its user can have a refund for the tax that was paid for. It also allows its user to check for the tax deduction which was already made due for him and the different deductions that were not yet covered; the software will then tell its user how he can qualify to get them. Turbo tax Deluxe includes a Smart Check which scans the user’s file to verify if there are many mistakes made so that the user can still change them before filing it.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .tax files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .tax. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
