For best taste, eat your commercially frozen turkey within 6 months. It will be safe to eat for much longer than that since pathogenic bacteria will not grow at proper freezer temperatures - although it may not be as tender and juicy. And this is assuming it has never been defrosted. The quality will also depend on how well the food has been wrapped.
Chemical changes - such as rancidity - can also occur over time in the freezer, making the meat inedible.
So the turkey could keep well for longer than 6 months or even a year, but there is no point to hanging onto it that long.
Alternatively, look on the plastic bag the turkey came in and it will tell you.
If it is kept solidly frozen, it will keep (in theory) indefinitely. But in fact, it is fine to eat for six months after you have frozen it, but poultry deteriorates in flavor rapidly after that. After a year in the freezer, it would be rather tasteless when cooked, and after 18 months, it would be unpleasantly tasteless, though still technically "safe".
Your question isn't very clear; if you are asking how long you can leave a turkey in the freezer, it's up to 1 year. If you are asking how long you can leave a still frozen (thawing) turkey (that used to be frozen or fresh), it depends on the size of turkey and the temperature in the refrigerator since that will determine how long it will take to thaw (it takes approximately 24hrs for each 5lbs). Once the turkey is thawed (or fresh), According to USDA, uncooked turkey is good for 1-2 days (http://www.fsis.usda.gov/Fact_Sheets/Turkey_from_Farm_to_Table/index.asp)
