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.

Sorry online is only for 2017 now.  So you have to buy the Desktop CD/Download program here https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/past-years-products/ 

 Or you can get the blank forms from the IRS and do them by hand. Either way you will have to print and mail prior year returns. And send each year in a separate envelope so the IRS doesn't miss any. 

You should clear your 2016 info out and use it for 2017.  How to clear and start over https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/2586254-using-clear-start-over-in-turbotax-online
