How do I file taxes for 2016

If you never filed a 2016 tax return then you would need to purchase, download and install on a personal computer one of the 2016 desktop editions from this TurboTax website -

A 2016 tax return can only be printed and mailed, it cannot be e-filed.


If you did file a 2016 tax return then you would need to file an amended tax return for 2016 to add the 2016 W-2's.

See this TurboTax support FAQ for amending a 2016 tax return originally completed and filed using TurboTax -

How do I file taxes for 2016

FYI ... it is now too late to get a 2016 refund  but you must file if you have a requirement to do so and/or you owe.   And the 2016 program  will only be supported for another 3 months so if you need it get it soon.
