Fix my 2018 return now

What do you need to fix?  Did you start it last year and mess it up?  Was it rejected?  What is the issue?

A 2018 tax return cannot be e-filed.  E-filing for 2018 returns closed permanently on October 15, 2019.  In order to file your 2018 return you have to print, sign and mail it now.  That is the ONLY way to file it.  

 

It is unclear what you are doing.   If you just used the current online software program to prepare what you thought was your 2018 return, that is a big mistake.  Online is ONLY for 2019 returns--no other year.  A 2018 return has to be prepared using purchased desktop software, and it has to be submitted by mail.

 

Online preparation and e-filing for 2018 is permanently closed.

To file a return for a prior tax year

If you need to prepare a return for 2016, 2017, or 2018 you can purchase and download desktop software to do it, then print, sign,  and mail the return(s)

Remember to prepare your state return as well—if you live in a state that has a state income tax.

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/state received the return.

Note:  The desktop software you need to prepare the prior year return must be installed/downloaded to a full PC or Mac.  It cannot be used on a mobile device.

 

If you are getting a refund, there is not a penalty for filing past the deadline.  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.

IF you prepared the 2018 return last year and just did not get it filed---then here is what you can do:

 

First find the right account and find the return:

Many people have multiple TT accounts and forget how to access them.  Log out of the account you are in now.

 

Account recovery

Or did you use the desktop version of TurboTax?  If so, the files are on your own hard drive or any backup device you used like a flash drive.

Next:

If you have any changes/corrections at all to make to your 2018 return, you now have to complete it using desktop software, which you must download to a full PC or Mac  (not to a mobile device).

If you already paid for your online software you can ask customer support for a download of the desktop software.

They are available from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific time Monday-Friday.

If you are getting a refund, there is no penalty for filing late.  If you owe tax due, then file and pay the amount due as shown on the Form 1040, but expect a bill later from the IRS for the penalty and interest you will owe.  Only the IRS will calculate this—TurboTax will not calculate it.
