Can I safely delete forms 6252 from 7 years ago?

I did some installment sales  7 years ago, and I used Form 6252. Ever since then, TurboTax has imported these when I start my new year. I still have them in my forms list for this year. Only this year the form has been updated and it is now "missing information", which I have no idea how to correctly provide. Thus, can I simply delete the forms? I don't know how they are still relevant 7 years later, but I just wanted to double check before I axe them.

Get your taxes done using TurboTax

If your installment sale was completed before 2019 (e.g., ALL of the installments were completed before tax year 2019), you can delete the form. Here's how:

  1. Open or continue your return in TurboTax.
  2. In the left menu, select Tax Tools and then Tools.
  3. In the pop-up window Tool Center, choose Delete a form.
  4. Select Delete next to the form/schedule/worksheet in the list and follow the instructions.
