Completing estates final return for short year 1/1/22-7/31/22. Turbotax 2021 will not accept start date in 2022.

I am trying to do a final return for my father's estate.  His estate uses calendar year so his last return ended 12/31/21.   The short year is from 1/1/22-7/31/22.  Since 2021 Turbotax will not be available for a while, I am using 2021.  Unfortunately, 2021 Turbotax Business does not accept a start date of 1/1/22.  It does accept end date of 7/31/22.  it looks like the start date has to be in 2021.  I know people do short returns all the time for final returns - How do I do this?  I have the return complete, just the start date is not correct.

Would it be acceptable to write 2022 on the return and then mail it in?

Yes. I do not believe there is any other method (with 2021 TurboTax Business) when the tax year begins and ends in 2022.
