Technically, yes.  

BUT, you'll have to paper file and you'll have to manually change the 2018 to 2019.  AND you'll have to be aware of any carryovers to change and the impact of any new tax laws, tax table changes, increase limits on various things.

If at all possible just wait until the 2019 software becomes available in (usually) November.
