Can I still file my 2013 taxes

You can still prepare and file (by mail) a 2013 return.  You can purchase 2013 desktop software as a download from TurboTax at the link below.

https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/past-years-products/

The 2013 return has to be printed and mailed.  It cannot be efiled.

You can even file years prior to 2013, but if you are due a Federal refund, the statute of limitations to get the money is 3 years from the due date of the original return, or extended due date (if applicable.)

So a 2013 return which was due in April 2014, has until this year's  filing deadline in April 2017 to get a refund.  If an extension was timely filed in 2013, one would have until this year's filing deadline in October 2017.

TurboTax no longer sells or supports the 2013 software, but I see that Amazon is still selling the 2013 product as a download. There are also some third-party sellers at Amazon selling the 2013 CD version, but I'd shy away from the CD, since it is Release 1, and I'm not sure if you will have any updating problems at this point.

Also, if you have a modern computer OS such as Windows 10, I don't know how well 2013 installs and runs, but Windows has a "compatibility mode" which one can possibly use to install the program and run it simulating an earlier OS.  If you're using a modern MAC OS X such as Sierra or High Sierra, then I don't know what problems you will encounter, but it might not work since the program was written before those Mac versions were around.

Another option if your return is simple, is to download the 2013 forms and 2013 Instructions from the IRS website and prepare them by hand.

See the additional warnings I added about old software and modern operating systems above.
