TT Online is only for 2016.  To do 2015, you must pruchase and doweload the 2015 desktop software, and then file by mail.

Be sure to run a program update after installation.

Not all the 2016 forms are finalized, and it is too early to file now anyway.

Or, are you trying to do a 2015 return?

I'm trying to do the 2015 not 2016.

The TurboTax online editions are only for tax year 2016.

Go to this website to purchase and download one of the 2015 desktop editions - https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/past-years-products/

A tax year 2015 return can only be printed and mailed, it cannot be e-filed.

Turbo Tax online is only good for 2016 returns now.  You have to buy and download and install  the prior year Desktop program to do an older return.  There is no penalty if you are getting a refund.  You have to mail in past year returns.  You should just ignore what you entered in the Online version.  You need to start over in the Desktop program.  You can buy the prior year programs here,

You can still use your Online account to do this year's 2016 return but you will need to clear out your entries and start over for 2016.  Or abandon this online account and start a new one.
