Can I file past years tax returns by e-file using turbotax?

TurboTax doesn’t use EFILE, it uses NETFILE. EFILE is for professional tax preparers, while NETFILE is for regular people.

 

But yes, you can NETFILE returns from past years. The CRA is currently accepting returns from 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 via NETFILE. Any returns from 2015 or before, you would have to print out and mail.

 

If you would like to use TurboTax Online, we only have 3 years currently available:

2019: https://ww2.2019.turbotaxonline.intuit.ca/

2018: https://ww2.2018.turbotaxonline.intuit.ca/

2017: https://ww2.2017.turbotaxonline.intuit.ca/

 

If you have a Windows computer, then we have TurboTax CD/Download available for tax years 2014 to 2019.

You can find 2019 here: https://turbotax.intuit.ca/personal-tax-software/download-tax-software.jsp

You can find the older years here: https://turbotax.intuit.ca/tax-software/prior-year-taxes.jsp

 

The CRA also has the tax return forms that you can print and fill out available on their website, going back to the 80s: https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/forms-publications/tax-packages-years.html

Are you having a problem with Netfiling? If so, we have included below, for your information, our TurboTax FAQ about NETFILE. Please review the list of errors and ineligibility list included in the links to see if any of the situations apply.

 

Why do I get an error when I try to submit my return through the CRA’s NETFILE service?

 

Why am I not eligible to file my tax return using NETFILE?

 

If the issue was not solved, I believe one of our telephone support agents would be able to help you further as they can view your screen, if necessary, to guide you. To contact us please follow this link: Contact Us form. Once you go through the steps and complete the form, the phone number to speak to a TurboTax agent will appear on the page.

 

Thank you for your patience.
