Manually Update TurboTax Business 2020 for Windows Software

Can you please post a link for the manual update for TurboTax Business 2020 software? 

 

I got an email notification saying my forms were ready to download and when I download updates in TurboTax desktop program it says "Your software is up to date". However, I still can not file because it still says the 1065 forms still need to be updated.

 

I have already tried the manual update from this link: 

 

https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/updating/help/manually-update-turbotax-for-windows-soft[product ke...

 

When I download that manual update it says I do not have TurboTax 2020 installed on my computer, which makes me think that this update is only for TurboTax Individual and not TurboTax Business. 

 

Does anyone have any advice on how to fix the issue?

Same issue here.  Received email notification the forms were ready and I ran the automatic update.  The forms continue to say they require updating but the auto update says everything is up to date.  The only manual updates I can find are for 2019.  I am needing the manual update for Turbo Tax Business 2020.

Does anyone know how to directly tag a rep from TurboTax to make them aware of this issue? Thanks.

Same issue for me. Can’t update Form 8960 even though 2 emails say it’s available.

Same issue for me.  Trying to update IRS forms 8949, 8960, and 1116.  Received TurboTax e-mail and updated the software but it still says the forms are not ready.  "Check for Updates" now only says that the software is up to date.

I am having the same problem!  I was consulting with TurboTax rep for over a 1/2 hour yesterday, told me to do several things and then stated that the email that was sent out was in error.   The actual update was to be released today (02/08).  Waiting, waiting!

The link you described isn't for TurboTax Business 2020, it is for:

"Basic, Deluxe, Premier, Home & Business"

Can't find the link for Business... will wait for TT to respond with the correct update.

What a huge waste of time!

I received the email that the 2 forms I need are ready.  Updated but no forms added! Uninstalled/reinstalled + updated. Still no additional forms. The 2 I need still missing.

 

Called and got sent the link for the personal products update even though I said "BUSINESS" version.

 

Called back and after some time, was told one of the two forms is not ready until Feb 11, so neither will download.

 

There is no manual update for TT Business 2020.

 

Your tax forms are ready.
 
The wait is over! The tax forms we needed to finish up your taxes are ready.
  • Form 1041 Schedule E, Supplemental Income and Loss, p2
  • Form 8960, Net Investment Income Tax - Individual, Estates, and Trusts
Open TurboTax on your computer, install the updates when prompted, and your forms will be automatically included.

If you're having trouble updating on your PC, try a manual update

Thanks Critter-3 but the link you provided does not include a manual update for 2020.

I have same issue, Form 8960 will not update despite receiving e-mail from intuit that the form is updated and ready, 'check for update' says I am up to date.
