To complete and file a 2020 tax return using TurboTax you would need to purchase, download and install on a personal computer one of the 2020 desktop editions from this website - https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/past-years-products/

 

A 2020 tax return can only be printed and mailed, it cannot be e-filed.

 

There are no penalties for filing a tax return after the due date if the return is being filed for a tax refund.

 

 

 

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

Here is the IRS 2020 Form 1040
https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-prior/f1040--2020.pdf


or if you want bigger type use 1040SR for Seniors,
https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f1040s.pdf


And 2020 Instructions

2020 Tax and EIC Tables

Then when you do file 2021 enter 0 for the 2020 AGI since you are filing 2020 late.


You have to print and mail prior year returns. 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 received the return. Don’t forget state.

Is there a reason you didn't file a 2020 tax return?  If you were a dependent that year, you are not eligible for stimulus.
