To be sure TurboTax desktop software is set up to automatically update, start TurboTax and:
- Click on Online
- Click on Connection Preference
- Select Connect any time, don't ask me again
- Click OK
These settings work perfectly with an always-on Internet connection such as cable or DSL. If you need to start an Internet connection before using a browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox) or downloading email, you can choose 'Always ask me first' in TurboTax Connection Preferences. If you choose this option, always let TurboTax check for updates when it asks to. You will need to open your Internet connection for TurboTax to check for and download updates.
