TurboTax On Windows XP

Tuesday, January 19th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Quick Tips, Security Help

Maynard has a question about this year’s version of TurboTax. He writes: “I was wandering if Turbo tax will still work on Windows XP. I used it last year but XP is not listed on their list.”


According to TurboTax, you can still install and use the program on Windows XP, but they don’t recommend it as XP is no longer a supported operating system.

The program may not run as well because it hasn’t been designed to run on TurboTax, but more importantly, XP computers are vulnerable to viruses and security problems, because they are not protected. (Even if you have third-party security, they do not have the necessary information from Microsoft to completely protect your system.)

TurboTax will offer support for problems on XP, but if not if the problem is directly related to using XP.

    Wandering will do him no good other than maybe getting him lost.
    He should be “wondering”.

      Hey KD, Obviously Maynard is already lost, or he wouldn’t still be on his; “X-Pedition.” Will the XP madness ever END?
