How do I amend 2018 taxes if I didn't not originally file with turbo tax

You would have to purchase the 2018 Desktop version of TurboTax (you cannot use the Online version).  Then you would have to enter all your information into the software exactly like it was when you originally filed your return.  Then you need to "trick" the program that you filed by choosing to file by mail.

 

Then you can go through the amendment interview.  It would be easier to go back to where you filed your original return.

 

You can purchase the 2018 TurboTax software at the following website:

You can also manually amend your return.  The following is the Federal 1040X form

Federal 1040X instructions:

If you need to amend a State return, you can go to your states website for their amendment forms

For prior years you have to buy the Desktop program.  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
