You can not file a 2015 tax return with Turbotax Online version since October of 2016. If you did that, what you did was to file a 2016 tax return with 2015 information. That is a bad thing. To correct it, you will need to prepare and file by mail an amended 2016 tax return removing the 2015 information and adding the 2016 information.
