What software are you using?  The current online software can only be used for a 2018 return.  If you entered 2015 using the online program you have made a big mistake.

If you are trying to do your 2016 tax filing, you will have to purchase desktop software that supports 2016 tax year.  This online system only supports the current (in January, 2019) 2018 tax year.

At the beginning, before entering any 2018 information is entered, Tarbo tax asks to upload last years (2017). By mistake I entered 2016. I find no way to correct it - any suggestions?
