If you already created an account, the TurboTax login Procedure has been known to have issues during the peak parts of tax season are concentrated from January 15th to February 15th though this year will most likely change those dates to February 1st through the end of the month due to the late IRS starting date for accepting returns being delayed by our inept government shutdown.
The concentrated time period here is the end of January, fist of February when employers are required by law to send their employee W2 tax forms out to them. And then obviously the biggest surge which takes place just before the tax filing deadline.
There are two primary ways to log into TurboTax, outlined below.
The TurboTax login screen can be accessed by going directly to TurboTax,Com where you will find a sign in button in the top right corner of the screen.
Clicking this button will take you directly to the login screen that asks for your User ID and your Password. Once those have been entered you just simply click the Sign In button to access you account.
