When I follow the link for the download I am only given the option for downloading the 2018 software. Where do I find the 2016 software?

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)
<a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/past-years-products/">https://turbotax.intuit.com/persona...>
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/state 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.

"You can purchase the TurboTax software for tax years 2015, 2016, and 2017 at our Past Years' Product page."

You can only buy the download for prior years.  You have to buy a separate program for each year.  They only sell the last 3 years.  You need a full Windows or Mac computer to install it on.  Buy the download here   

  https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/past-years-products/

 

You have to print and mail prior year returns.  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.  Don’t forget state.

 

Important!  Mail Federal and State in separate envelopes and mail each year in separate envelopes.

 

If you are getting a refund, there is not a penalty for filing past the deadline.  You have 3 years to file for a refund.  If you owe taxes, the interest/penalties will be calculated by the IRS based on how much you owe and when they receive your return and payment. The IRS will bill you for this; it will not be calculated by TurboTax.

This is an old thread that transferred into this new forum.  The download version for TurboTax 2016 can still be purchased directly from TurboTax at this page:

 

https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/past-years-products/2016/

 

The 2016 return cannot be efiled.  It has to be printed, signed, dated, and mailed.

That is a terrible answer. There is no option at that link for a 2016 return. Would someone who actually knows how to find the 2016 software on this f'ed up site please provide a link that works?
