When and where did you enter last years W2?  Online is only for 2020 now.  You have to file each year separately.  Did you file a 2019 tax return?  Not understanding your question.

On the turbo tax app and no I didn’t file my 2019 taxes last year that’s why I’m trying to do them this year with my 2020 taxes

To complete and file a 2019 tax return using TurboTax you would need to purchase, download and install on a personal computer one of the 2019 desktop editions from this website - https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/past-years-products/

 

A 2019 tax return can only be printed and mailed, it cannot be e-filed.

Do NOT add the 2019 income on the 2020 tax return ... this WILL be audited for sure and will delay processing the 2020 return for months.

Sorry, Online for 2019 and prior is closed now so you can not start a new 2019 or 2018 return or finish one. Online is only for 2020. Oct 15, was the last day to efile.  2019 is now the prior year.

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

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.

If you want to file for free you can fill out the forms by hand. Here are some basic forms…..

Here is the IRS 2019 Form 1040
https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-prior/f1040--2019.pdf

or if you want bigger type use 1040SR for Seniors,
https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-prior/f1040s--2019.pdf

And 2019 Instructions https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-prior/i1040gi--2019.pdf

2019 Tax and EIC Tables
https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-prior/i1040tt--2019.pdf

Sch 1 : https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-prior/f1040s1--2019.pdf
Sch 2 : https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-prior/f1040s2--2019.pdf
Sch 3 : https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-prior/f1040s3--2019.pdf
Then when you do file 2020 enter 0 for the 2019 AGI since you are filing 2019 late.

You need to delete the 2019 W2 and info from Online so you can use it for 2020.  Or try to clear it out and start over

you can not put a W-2 from two different years into the same tax return.   the 2019 W-2 must go with a 2019 tax return and the 2020 W-2 must go with a 2020 tax return.
