You have to buy the Desktop CD/Download program here https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/past-years-products/     

Or you can get the blank forms from the IRS and do them by hand.  Either way you will have to print and mail prior year returns.  And send each year in a separate envelope so the IRS doesn't miss any.

Here are some blank forms & instructions for 2016

If all you have is a W-2 (nod dependents or other complications), you may want to try filing by hand and save the Turbotax fee*. <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://www.irs.gov/forms-instructions">https://www.irs.gov/forms-instructions</a> or "Google" free 2016 tax forms

* The free versions of TT are no longer available after October 15 of each year.

Use the CD/Download program for 2016 on your PC to do that tax return.
You'll have to mail it to the IRS.

Use a mailing service that will track it, like UPS or certified mail, so you will know the IRS received it.
