For tax years 2020, 2019, or 2018
To prepare a new prior-year return, you'll need to purchase and download that year's TurboTax software for PC or Mac, as TurboTax Online and the mobile app are only available for the current tax year.
After installing the software, open it and follow the on-screen 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.
Here are some other resources that might help:
- Amending a prior-year return
- Accessing a previously-filed online return
- Accessing a previously filed return in TurboTax CD/Download
- Finding last year’s adjusted gross income (AGI)
For tax years 2017 or earlier
We no longer sell or support TurboTax products for 2017 and earlier tax years.
