If you did not pay for the one of the 2016 online editions of either Plus, Deluxe, Premier or Self-Employed you will need to start a 2017 tax return using the online Free editon and create the account with the exact same user ID you used to create the prior year online account - https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/online/

After starting the tax return with the Free edition you will need to upgrade to the Plus edition and pay for the Plus edition ($29.99) so you can access all the prior year online tax returns through October 2019.

To pay the TurboTax online account fees by credit card, without completing the 2017 return at this time, click on Tax Tools on the left side of the online program screen.  Then click on Print Center.  On the next page, to pay by credit card, click Pay Now.  On the next screen just click on the Continue button.  The next screen will show a review of your Fees, click on Continue.  Complete the next screen to pay by credit card and click Continue.

You get your W2 from your employer.  Your employer should be sending it directly to you.  You do not have to get it by importing to Turbo Tax.

TT does not have your W-2.

A W-2 is not your tax return.  A W-2 is supplied by your employer to you and then you enter the tax data from the W-2 onto your tax return which is then filed with the IRS and/or your State.
