I never submitted 2019 tax since I thought taxes were due in Dec w/extension. How do I submit my 2019 taxes? When I log in to turbotax it is tries to start my 2020 taxes.

I completed my taxes, but never hit submit, just filed an extension. All I want to do is submit the information I saved in July.

TurboTax online and e-file for 2019 ended on Oct 15, 2020. 2019 (and earlier tax years) can now only be completed using the CD/download software installed on a Mac or Windows computer. The return must be printed, signed and mailed.

2017-2019 software can be purchased here:

See this TurboTax help article:

"How do I finish a prior-year return that I started in TurboTax Online?

If you started your 2017, 2018 or 2019 return in TurboTax Online but weren't able to file it before the shutdown, you can finish and paper-file it in the TurboTax download software for PC or Mac.

Start by purchasing and downloading the software and install it on your computer. If you're also filing a state, be sure to download and install the corresponding state program (PC instructions | Mac instructions).

1. Now sign in at TurboTax.com using the same login you used to prepare your prior-year return.
If you don't remember it, try account recovery. Still no luck? Then just start over in the TurboTax software you downloaded and skip the rest of these instructions.

2. Under Your tax returns & documents, select Download .tax file (not the PDF) for the prior year you want and save it to your computer.

3. Back in the CD/download software, select Find a Tax File, and then browse to the tax data file you downloaded in the previous step.

4. Select the file and click Open.

5 . You can now finish up in the software. Your return will need to be paper-filed, as e-filing prior years is no longer available."

FYI - the extension was only to Oct 15 (not Dec 15).  And it was an extension just to file the return.  Any tax due payment was still due by July 15, 2020 (normally April 15).  So you might get a bill for interest if you pay after July 15.
