What is a TT20 file?
A TT20 file is a tax return created by Intuit TurboTax Canada 2020, an application used to file tax returns in Canada. It contains tax return information, which includes Canadian federal and provincial tax data and personal information entered by the user. TT20 files are similar to .TAX2020 files created by the U.S. version of TurboTax 2020.
TurboTax Canada 2020 automatically creates the TT20 file when you save your tax return. The file stores your tax return progress, which allows you to close and reopen your tax return to continue working on it. Typically, the TT20 file is used for the following purposes:
- Saving a 2020 tax return to be electronically filed or printed to be mailed.
- Backing up a tax return in case of the loss or corruption of a tax return.
- Importing 2020 tax data from the previous year into the 2021 version of TurboTax Canada to fill out a 2021 tax return.
In Windows, TT20 files are saved by default in the following location:
NOTE: Tax return file extensions used by TurboTax Canada reflect the year of the tax data they contain. For example, a tax return for the 2019 year is saved with the .TT19 extension and returns for the 2018 year are saved with the .TT18 extension.
