  1. There is no order number in the email with my download link and code. Because TurboTax has NO IDEA how to import data from Schwab, your product is useless. Without an order number, I can not ask for a refund. I will never buy from TurboTax again.

    1. Clayton, Where did you buy your copy of TurboTax from? Directly from intuit.com or from another site/reseller?
