Yikes!  You did it wrong.  You can't use the Online version to do 2018.  Online is only for 2019 now.  You just filed a 2019 return using your 2018 info.

 

You now have a problem.  You have to file each year separately.  Online is only for 2019.  You have to wait and see if your efile gets accepted.   If they reject it for something you can change it around to be only for 2019

 

But if they accept it you need to wait some more for it to fully process and you get the first refund.  Then you need to Mail in an Amended 1040X return to change it to be for 2019.

 

You can check your efile status here   https://turbotax.intuit.com/tax-tools/efile-status-lookup/

Don’t forget your state.  And you will have to print and mail your returns.  So be sure to attach copies of your W2s and any 1099s that have withholding on them.  You have to mail federal and state in separate envelopes because they go to different places.  Get a tracking number from the post office when you mail them for proof of filing.
