You can e file your current 2017 tax return.  However, your 2016 tax return you can not e file,  you can file a paper return using Turbo Tax CD/Download for Windows or Mac. Simply purchase the software and install it on your computer. You’ll need to print and mail your return.

In 2019 you can only file 2017 on paper and mail it.  Did you start a 2017 return online last year?  How to finish a prior year online return https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/prior-year-return/help/how-do-i-finish-a-prior-year-return-that-i-...

 

You can only buy the download for prior years.  You have to buy a separate program for each year.  They only sell the last 3 years.  You need a full Windows or Mac computer to install it on.  Buy the download here

You have to print and mail prior year returns.  When you mail a tax return, you need to attach any documents showing tax withheld, such as your W-2’s or any 1099’s.  Use a mailing service that will track it, such as UPS or certified mail so you will know the IRS received the return.  Don’t forget state.

 

Important!  Mail Federal and State in separate envelopes and mail each year in separate envelopes.

 

If you are getting a refund, there is not a penalty for filing past the deadline.  You have 3 years to file for a refund.  If you owe taxes, the interest/penalties will be calculated by the IRS based on how much you owe and when they receive your return and payment. The IRS will bill you for this; it will not be calculated by TurboTax.
