The IRS allows electronic filing of tax returns for the current tax year and the two previous tax years. Prior year returns can only be filed electronically by registered tax preparers, and only when the Modernized e-File System is available. The IRS posts the status of the Modernized e-File (MeF) system on the MeF Status Page.

Individuals filing their own prior year return must print/mail the return.
