When will I be able to file my return

A 2019 return cannot be prepared in Online TurboTax.    The website is currently only for 2020 returns.   Do NOT try to prepare and file a 2019 return using the Online website.   If you mistakenly prepared a 2019 return there on the 2020 website, you need to delete it.   Here's how:

If you want to use TurboTax to prepare a 2019 return, you'll need to use 2019 desktop software (CD/download).   You can purchase 2019 desktop software directly from TurboTax as a download at this page and install it on your computer:

You may be able to find the 2019 software cheaper at a reputable authorized retailer like Amazon, but even there be sure it is a legitimate authorized product from Intuit sold directly by Amazon itself, since there's no way to be sure all third-party sellers on Amazon are legitimate.   Here's a list of authorized retailers:

Be aware there are "too-good-to-be true" Internet scam sites selling fake or pirated software.  Only companies in the above FAQ are authorized for legit TurboTax downloads.

The 2019 return cannot be efiled.  It will need to be printed, signed, dated, and mailed.  It's a good idea to mail by a method that has tracking, such as certified mail, priority mail, etc.

 

If you have both Federal and state returns, you need to mail each one separately to its respective tax agency.

Or did you start a 2019 return online prior to the 2019 online October shutdown, and want to finish that one without starting over?  If so, you can download the *.tax2019 data file from your online account and finish it in the 2019 desktop software.    If you already paid for your 2019 product previously, TurboTax Support should furnish you the software.

 

OR another option is to download the 2019 forms and instructions for free from the IRS website and fill them out manually.
