If you are in a disaster area affected by Irma or Harvey, the IRS has extended the filing deadline to January 31, 2018.  There are no forms to file, the IRS will determine your eligibility from your address.

This is not an extension of the time to pay; your payments were due on April 17 and late fees and penalties will continue to accrue.

Be aware that Turbotax online will close sometime around October 23, and the IRS will also close e-filing on that day.  To file a late return, you will need to buy Turbotax as a CD or download to install on your own computer and you will have to print your tax return and mail it in.
