I entered my 2019 tax information with my 2020. Am I supposed to file them separate?

I didn't file the 2019 taxes last year.

Yikes!  Did you file it?  Sorry You have to do each year separately.  You can only do 2020 online.

 

If you have not filed from Turbo Tax yet and entered 2019 info into the 2020 Online version you can try to clear and start over. Then use Turbo Tax for only 2020.

 

if you did file it then it all got filed as a 2020 return.  Then you need to Mail in an Amended 1040X return to change it to be only for 2020.

You need a full Windows or Mac computer to install it on.

 

If you want to file for free you can fill out the forms by hand.  Here are some basic forms.....

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.

You have to file them separately. Each year has its own laws and forms.
