Prior Year Return

I need to file my 2017 tax return. I have already downloaded the 2017 tax file from Turbo Tax, but when I open it, it just says "Amend" 2017 return. I paid $119.99 to be able to file it and I need to start from the beginning not amend.

Did you purchase and download the 2017 Home & Business Edition from this website - https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/past-years-products/

 

If so, when you install the software the program should prompt you for a New Tax Return not an amended return.

Prior Year Return

Hello.  I am trying to file a prior year's return but I have moved to a new address.  What address should I enter in the tax form itself?  In the "Personal Information" section I put my current address but inside the tax filing itself, don't I have to put the address I lived in that year?

The mailing address you enter is where you currently live and where you receive your mail in case the IRS ever needed to contact you via mail.

You do not enter the address where you used to live when completing a prior year tax return.  In the Personal Info section you are asked to enter your state of residence as of the last day of the year for the year of the tax return and if you lived in or worked in any other state during the year of the tax return.
