Can I get my tax returns from 2015 and 2016? Can I upgrade now and still get access to past returns filed with TurboTax and actually file my 2017 taxes later?

Need my returns for pre-qualification, but 2017 tax documents are not available to completely file taxes. Can I upgrade now and file later, so that I have immediate access to my 2015 and 2016 tax returns?

Can I get my tax returns from 2015 and 2016? Can I upgrade now and still get access to past returns filed with TurboTax and actually file my 2017 taxes later?

Once you pay for the upgrade to the 2017 edition of Plus you will have access to all the prior year online tax returns through October 2019.   Paying for the upgrade does not mean you must file your 2017 tax return now.  You can always sign out and return at a later date to complete and file the 2017 tax return.

If you did not pay for the one of the 2016 online editions of either Plus, Deluxe, Premier or Self-Employed you will need to start a 2017 tax return using the online Free editon and create the account with the exact same user ID you used to create the prior year online account - https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/online/

After starting the tax return with the Free edition you will need to upgrade to the Plus edition and pay for the Plus edition so you can access the prior year online tax returns.

To pay the TurboTax online account fees by credit card, without completing the 2017 return at this time, click on Tax Tools on the left side of the online program screen.  Then click on Print Center.  On the next page, to pay by credit card, click Pay Now.  On the next screen just click on the Continue button.  The next screen will show a review of your Fees, click on Continue.  Complete the next screen to pay by credit card and click Continue.
