I saved my turbo tax file as a pdf and now i need to convert it to a tax file to open it in turbo tax

Hi Bob,

I saved my 2010 turbo tax file as a PDF, and now I can't open it in my turbo tax program in the list of documents. I need to ammend the return but it doesnt open in the tax program.
How can I fix this issue and convert .PDF to .Tax?

As you learned, the PDF is not a data file in the sense that TurboTax can read it. I assume that you used TurboTax Online, correct? Also, did you electronically file in 2010? If you did electronically file in 2010, we'll have to retrieve your file from our archives. To do that, contact me by visiting http://tinyurl.com/bmeighan and leave me your full name and SSN with authorization to access your file.
