.tax08 File Extension

Developer: Intuit
File type: TurboTax 2008 Tax Return File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .tax08. Files with the file extension .tax08 can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .tax08 files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .tax08 file?

The TAX file extension is used by TurboTax, a widely used tax filing software. This program is usable by US based citizens for the purpose of completing tax returns via a simple GUI (Graphical User Interface). This is preferable to traditional paper based forms which are a lot more tedious, less intuitive and involves posting them and the subsequent delays. Originally this software was developed by Chipsoft until they later sold it to Intuit. The file extension is often prep ended with a year - in this instance tax08 file extension for tax returns in the year 2008. The tax2008 file extension is also a more commonly used extension for the year 2008. Unfortunately each file is version-specific and therefore must be opened with the matching version of the software. This is however a minor downfall in what is otherwise an excellent and affordable package. TurboTax software is updated on a yearly basis and sometimes more frequently with bug fixes.

how to open a .tax08 file?

Intuit TurboTax Deluxe

Intuit TurboTax Deluxe

Turbo Tax Deluxe is software that was developed by Intuit which is being used for tax preparation. The software works by asking its user several questions in regard to the user’s credits, income, family situation, changes made in tax situation among the others then the software will search its database for the credits and deductions so that its user can have a refund for the tax that was paid for. It also allows its user to check for the tax deduction which was already made due for him and the different deductions that were not yet covered; the software will then tell its user how he can qualify to get them. Turbo tax Deluxe includes a Smart Check which scans the user’s file to verify if there are many mistakes made so that the user can still change them before filing it.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .tax08 files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .tax08. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
