Do I have to wait for this years tax return to be accepted and approved before I can file a late/previous tax return? Or can I file all tax returns at one time?

No.  You can file them at any time.  File each return separately.  You have to print and mail prior year returns so put them in separate envelopes. Do you need help doing prior years?  

Sorry it's too,late to start a 2022 online return or use the mobile app, either on Turbo Tax or the IRS. And too late to efile 2022.

If you need to start 2022 you can buy the Desktop download here

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

If you have a simple return and want to file for free you can fill out the forms by hand. Here are some basic forms.....

Here is the 2022 1040 return

or if you want bigger type use 1040SR for Seniors,

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.

Then when you file for 2023 you need to enter 0 for the 2022 AGI since you are filing 2022 late.

If you are filing different years, they can all be filed at one time. If you are amending, you need to wait until the original file is completely processed.
