I am using the Business version, Form 1065. I have used Turbo Tax Business for several years. H&R states that their software will import data from TurboTax. My problem is I can not find how to import the data.
Does anyone know how to do this?

The reply given is not a solution. You can not start a 'FREE' Business return to be able to import a TurboTax file, This may work with a personal return, but NOT BUSINESS, since you can not start a return for free,. I tried the 'browse' option on the actual purchased business software and it tells me the 2012 tax return file is not in the folder (which it is, but HRBlock does not recognize). I am highly upset, as on the back of the retail box it states that one can quickly and easily import from the TurboTax software.

Waiting to hear the results of this. I specifically purchased Premium and Business since it says it imports from TurboTax.
They say that have online chat, but I cannot find it. As a computer professional you'd think I'd be able to!
I called and spoke to Customer Service and after about 20 minutes, I was told that my "problem" was being escalated and I would be called in 24-48 hours. Unfortunately, I missed the call, and when I called them, I waited on hold for literally 40 minutes. I can't afford to waste so much time on this. I'm going to ask for a refund and go back to TurboTax Business. It may be quite expensive, especially when having to add another $50 for the state filing, but my time is worth money and trying to get H&R to work is a waste of both.

Same problem.....I need to import my 2015 turbotax business file and it says it doesn't exist. Need for form 1120S and California 100S. It says on the website that this works, but I have no clue how.

Same problem here. When I try to import from the folder where my .tax2014 file is located it tells me "the selected folder does not contain the 2014 program". What program? Why would I have H&R Block's 2014 Business program on my computer and a Turbo Tax 2014 Business return?
I also fell for the "import quickly from Turbotax line."
What I think happened is that they copy pasted the same text from their personal editions and business does not support the import from TT feature. Searching on Google brings up this same issue going back to last year so I'm guessing we willl not have any solution and that H&R block is content with us returning the software and getting out of their hair.

I take it no one has found a solution? And no response from H&R customer service?
If it's true that Business won't import, I would have stayed with Turbotax.
