How do I get turbo tax for Mac OS if I have a windows subscription?

I am a recent convert to the Mac systems, but have always used Turbo Tax with windows. Currently, I have a subscription to download the Windows version of Turbo Tax from the Intuit site. If I had ordered the CD, I could just use the CD to install either windows or Mac version. It seems right now I'd have to setup another subscription to actually download the Mac version. This doesn't make sense to me as I wouldn't have to pay extra if I just ordered the CD in the first place. Is there something I'm missing where I can go to download the Mac version?

I don't think you should have a problem. I've always just done them right in a Web browser, and I started on a PC but have done them on a Mac for the last couple of years. Just go ahead and try it.

Response by poster: Sorry to clarify, I have a paranoia issue about doing taxes via a webapp. I'd rather keep my personal information on my own computers.

Tesla: do you efile? If so, your information is all going to the same place anyway...

Essentially, this is probably not a question we can answer. You need to call Turbo Tax and ask if there's some way to convert your subscription or otherwise access the Mac version. If there is, great. If not, you'll have to find a PC to do your taxes or buy the Mac version separately.

Have you contacted Intuit customer service and asked about switching your subscription to the Mac version? It may simply be a matter of manually directing your browser to the Mac download directory.

As for using the webapp version...I can't speak for TurboTax, but we found the web-based version of TaxCut Premium to be horribly incomplete in comparison to the retail (CD) Premium version.
