Sorry but it is too late for you to start a 2019 tax return using online TurboTax now. The deadline to start a new return online was on October 15, 2020. Online for 2019 is closing down to transition to online software for 2020 returns. The only way to use TurboTax software for a 2019 return now is to use a paid version of desktop software downloaded to a full PC or Mac. Or you can use the forms from the IRS and prepare them yourself by hand to mail in.
Online preparation and e-filing for 2017, 2018 and 2019 is permanently closed.
To file a return for a prior tax year
If you need to prepare a return for 2017, 2018, or 2019 you can purchase and download desktop software to do it, then print, sign, and mail the return(s)
You may also want to explore purchasing the software from various retailers such as Amazon, Costco, Best Buy, Walmart, Sam’s, etc.
Remember to prepare your state return as well—if you live in a state that has a state income tax.
When you mail a tax return, you need to attach any documents showing tax withheld, such as your W-2’s or any 1099’s. Use a mailing service that will track it, such as UPS or certified mail so you will know the IRS/state received the return.
Federal and state returns must be in separate envelopes and they are mailed to different addresses. Read the mailing instructions that print with your tax return carefully so you mail them to the right addresses.
Note: The desktop software you need to prepare the prior year return must be installed/downloaded to a full PC or Mac. It cannot be used on a mobile device.
If you are getting a refund, there is not a penalty for filing past the deadline. If you owe taxes, the interest/penalties will be calculated by the IRS based on how much you owe and when they receive your return and payment. The IRS will bill you for this; it will not be calculated by TurboTax.
The tax forms for 2019 include a Form 1040 and three possible extra “Schedules”:
if you have a startup/business then you shouldn't be using the free file program.
As of this moment you still have three hours to complete and e-File the return you already started.
