I started my 2017 taxes with you but never filed. How can I access everything that I have completed from last year and file my taxes?

 Online preparation and e-filing for 2017 is permanently closed.  You have to download 2017 software to a full PC or Mac (not to a mobile device) and then print, sign and mail your return.  If you already paid for your TurboTax software, you can contact customer support to push a download of the software to you.

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 and/or your state received the return.

I started my 2017 taxes with you but never filed. How can I access everything that I have completed from last year and file my taxes?

If you did not pay the 2017 TurboTax online account fees, you will need to purchase and download the 2017 desktop editions to complete your return.

 

How do I finish a prior-year return that I started in TurboTax Online?

If you started your 2015, 2016, or 2017 return in TurboTax Online but didn't finish it before the shutdown, you can always start over in the TurboTax CD/download software, available for purchase at TurboTax.com.

You can also transfer your incomplete return to the CD/download software if you don't want to start from scratch. Here's how:

  1. Purchase the TurboTax CD/Download software and install it on your PC or Mac computer.

o    If you're also doing a state return, be sure to download and install the corresponding state program on your PC or Mac.

  1. Now sign in at TurboTax.com with the same login you used to prepare your prior-year return.
  2. Under Your tax returns & documents, select Download .tax file(not the PDF) for the prior year you want and save it to your computer.
  3. Back in the CD/download software, select Find a Tax File, and then browse to the tax data file you downloaded in Step 3. Select the file and click Open.
  4. You can now finish up in the software. You'll need to paper-file, as e-filing for prior years is no longer available.
