Where do I go to file my 2018 W2’s?

Online preparation and e-filing for 2018 is permanently closed.

To file a return for a prior tax year

If you need to prepare a return for 2016, 2017, or 2018 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/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.


If you are getting a refund, there is not a penalty for filing past the deadline.  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.

To file a 2018 tax return using TurboTax, you must buy, download and install on your computer the 2018 program. Here is a link to buy it: https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/past-years-products/


Prior year returns can no longer be efiled. You must print and mail your 2018 return yourself. TurboTax doesn't print and mail it for you. Follow the instructions for how to mail a return and what to include.
