No you cannot file them all at once. If you have W-2 forms for previous tax years, you will need to file a separate return for each of the years to which the W-2 form applies.  If you qualify, you can use TurboTax Free Edition for your 2018 but you will need to purchase prior year editions, but you will only be able to purchase prior TurboTax software back to 2015 (https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/past-years-products/)

For tax years prior to 2015 you'll need to download the forms from the IRS website (https://www.irs.gov/)

If you are that far behind in preparing and filing your tax returns, this may not be a good "do it yourself" project.  You should seek some local paid professional tax help.  

As TurboTax JulieR says, software is no longer available for tax years earlier than 2015--and the deadline for 2015 is next week on April 15, 2019 to get a refund for a 2015 tax return or it will be too late.

You cannot get tax refunds for any years earlier than 2015--so no refunds for 2011, 2012, 2013, or 2014.  If you owe tax the IRS still wants you to pay.

If you decide to take on preparing the returns yourself--each tax year should be mailed in its own separate envelope. Do not combine them in the same envelope or they could be mis-handled or overlooked.  It is not possible to e-file any year except a 2018 return.

When you mail a tax return, you need to attach any documents showing tax withheld, such as your W-2’s or any 1099’s.  Use a mailing service that will track it, such as UPS or certified mail so you will know the IRS and/or your state received the return.

Remember to prepare your state returns as well—if you live in a state that has a state income tax.  You can get state forms from the state's web site:
