Will Turbo Tax create a question on whether a stimulus was received (for those claiming the credit because did not get stimulus)? Will it auto-generate where needed?

Yes, we have these questions.  The questions are in the section Federal Review, near the end of the TurboTax interview. 

 

Once the information is entered you will see your refund increase or balance due decrease, and TurboTax will enter the amount of the credit on Line 30 of Form 1040 for you.

 

The IRS is distributing payments through January 15, 2021.  Please wait until after this date to submit your tax return so that you will be filing the most accurate return possible.

The IRS will stop mailing checks on 1/15 so if you don't get it by the time the efiling opens at  the end of the month you can apply for the missing money on the 2020 return.  

 

CAUTION to those eager to jump the gun ... if you do NOT enter the correct amount of stimulus the IRS  did pay you in advance then expect your eagerness to delay your return being processed. And since the IRS is still suffering from understaffing due to the covid situation and perpetual underfunding  and they are also stretched thin managing the last minute tax law/form changes on top of sending out second stimulus payments  expect the delays to be long.

@SusanY1 @Critter-3 Thank you, I received it today even though IRS site says “Status not Available.”

That is very common.  Those look up tools are often not up to date which is why we warn folks to take a breath and wait it out.
