How do I prepare a prior-year tax return?

Instructions for preparing tax year 2018 and earlier returns are below the video.

If that's not what you were looking for, here are some more links:

Tax years 2018, 2017, or 2016

TurboTax Online and the mobile app are only available for the current tax year. You'll need to purchase and download the TurboTax software for PC or Mac.

After installing the software, open it and follow the onscreen instructions.

Prior-year returns must be paper-filed, as e-filing is no longer available. We'll walk you through that process when you get to the File section in the software.

Tax years 2015 or earlier

We no longer sell or support TurboTax products for 2015 and earlier tax years. See this article for alternative methods to file an older return.
