TaxACT can import data from PDF files of 1040, 1040A and 1040EZ returns prepared by the following software: TurboTax® and H&R Block At Home®.

In order to do so, you will simply need to export your return from that other program into a file with the Portable Document Format (PDF) which is readable using the Adobe Reader program. TaxACT will import information appearing on your 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ form, saving time and minimizing errors.
