No, you will need to print out the documents, sign them, and mail them yourself. TurboTax does not do this for you.

No.  You cannot use the online software to prepare a 2017 return.  You need to download the 2017 software to prepare the return and then YOU print it and mail it yourself.

Online preparation and e-filing for 2017 is permanently closed.

To file a return for a prior tax year

 If you need to prepare a return for 2015, 2016, or 2017 you can purchase and download desktop software to do it, then print, sign,  and mail the return(s)

Remember to prepare your state return as well—if you live in a state that has a state income tax.

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 received the return.

Note:  The desktop software you need to prepare the prior year return must be installed/downloaded to a full PC or Mac.  It cannot be used on a mobile device.
