If you have more than one account number with a tax form - you will need to add each account individually. 

Please note: TurboTax contains data import limitations. If there are more than 500 1099-B transactions per return, we recommend utilizing the desktop version of the application. This will allow you to import up to 2,200 transactions from your 1099-B. If the total number of transactions in your 1099-B exceeds 2,200, TurboTax’s import function may not work.

  2. Select “Federal”, then click on “Add income"

  6. Type “Apex” next to “Financial Institution” and select “Apex Clearing Corporation” from the drop-down. Click “Next” 
  7. Enter your account number in the “Apex User ID" field. You can find your account number by logging into your M1 Account and click the "Menu" button on the top right-hand side. Click "Settings" and then click "Accounts". You can also find this information on your tax form.
