how to export to turbo tax

I have Quicken Rental Property Manager and I want to import the files into my turbo tax program.  But Quicken RPM appears to only export QFI files.  I don't see any way to create a TIF file that Turbo Tax needs.  Help!!!!

    Turbo Tax 2010 Desktop program for Windows will only directly import from Quicken 2009, 2010, or 2011.  For Quicken 2008 or earlier you must first create a tax exchange format (.txf) file.  See this…..

    ps....the links might not be working right now because they are doing maintenance.  So try later.

      I'm working with the 2009 versions of both Rental Manager and Turbo Tax.  This is for tax year 2009.  And I can find absolutely no way for Quicken Rental Property Manager to create a TFX file.   It only creates QFX files.  Strange and frustrating!

      To generate a TXF file for TTax - run QWns Tax Schedule Report.
      You create the TXF file from this report.
      In QWin 2010, the menu item is at the top-left of the on-screen report.

      If you have Capital Gains to report - then run QWins Capital Gains Report to create the TXF file.

      If you want to import directly from QWin to TTax, you initiate the import from TTax, QWin must be up and running with the source file.
      • Thank-you! So we PULL information from Quicken into TurboTax, rather than PUSH info. from Quicken into TurboTax. Right?

      Right!
      • "Thank-you! So we PULL information from Quicken into TurboTax, rather than PUSH info. from Quicken into TurboTax. Right?"

        Actually, I have found you can do it either way - Push through a Quicken Tax report and then generate a TXF file, or pull through TT** and having the correct Quicken file open at the time of the pull.   I do not think RPM is any different in thos context than any other Quicken variation.

        **[Subject to general limitations as to what versions of TT will pull from what versions of Quicken as previously commented.]

      People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

      1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
      2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
      3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
      4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
      5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
