You need to use a TurboTax CD/Download product to complete your 2017 return. The IRS is no longer accepting these returns by e-file, you will need to print and mail your return.

Follow this link to get started: Past Years Products

You can then begin to complete your 2018 tax return with either TurboTax Online or TurboTax CD.

When completing your 2018 return and want to e-file, report your 2017 AGI of $0, regardless of what it actually was. The IRS will not have the real AGI because you are filing after October, 2018.

Online preparation and e-filing for 2017 and 2018 is permanently closed.  If you need to prepare a return for 2017 and 2018 you can purchase and download desktop software to do it, then print, sign,  and mail the return(s)  Prior Year TurboTax Products
