After you file

No.  Preparation and e-filing for 2016 is permanently closed.  The system is gearing up for 2017 returns.  You need to print, sign and mail the 2016 return; make sure to include any documents that show tax withheld such as W-2's and 1099's.

If you already paid for online software and started your 2016 return, contact customer support for a download of the desktop software which you will need to use to finish preparing your 2016 return, since the online software is unavailable now.
