TurboTax Online is closed for filing prior years.

In order to prepare prior year tax returns, you would need to purchase the respective TurboTax Desktop (Download/CD) for each year you are preparing.

Please see the following (TurboTax Desktop software is available for purchase for each of the three prior tax years (2014, 2015, 2016)):
