Because for Tax year 2016: Mac OS X v10.9 or higher (64-bit is required), you will need to upgrade to that for the C/D/Download Version.  However, you can use a Turbo Tax Online version.  I have included articles below to assist you in transferring last years tax information into an online version.

I'm using screen-sharing on my old MacBook Pro with a newer machine the 2018 software is installed on. That way I can use all my old TT & other tax stuff alongside & with this year's higher-OS app. :-)Shawn
