Online tax preparation and e-filing for 2018 returns is now permanently closed.  You had until midnight on Tuesday, October 15 to finish and attempt to e-file; if your e-file was rejected you had until October 20 to make corrections and re-file. Now it is too late to use online software or to e-file. If you have any changes/corrections at all to make to your 2018 return, you now have to complete it using desktop software, which you must download to a full PC or Mac  (not to a mobile device).

If you already paid for your online software you can ask customer support for a download of the desktop software.

If you are getting a refund, there is no penalty for filing late.  If you owe tax due, then file and pay the amount due as shown on the Form 1040, but expect a bill later from the IRS for the penalty and interest you will owe.  Only the IRS will calculate this—TurboTax will not calculate it.

When I was filling up online, it showed I will get a refund.  I was all done except for one question.  However, due to holidays I missed the October 15th deadline.  I can't remember if I had already paid then.  I have downloaded the 2018 version and paid for it.  However, now it is showing that I owe money.  It is not asking the same questions also.  I am also not getting the pop up screen for 1098-T.

Who can I contact?

I think I may have purchased the wrong version of TurboTax 2018... I am trying to finish filing my taxes now.  Can I change the version that I purchased?

What version did you buy and Windows or Mac?  What do you need?  All the Desktop programs have the same forms. You just get more help and guidance in the higher versions.  Or do you the other one for Windows or Mac?

I downloaded the app for 2018 but when I try to import forms from my financial institutions it doesn't let me. It says that I need to wait until 2020?
