When will TurboTax have the information on Disaster related 401k contributions?

I took out this money because of a qualified disaster (includes COVID-19)
You'll need to revisit this area. The IRS instructions related to disaster distributions weren't ready in time for us to include them in this release. Please revisit this area later.

When will TurboTax have the information on Disaster related 401k contributions?

You will report this on a Form 8915-E.  The IRS has not yet finalized the Form 8915-E for retirement plan distributions under the CARES act.  So this form cannot be included in the TurboTax program.  You will not be able to proceed until the form is available.

 

The IRS has not communicated when the form will be finalized for inclusion on the 2020 federal tax return.

Additionally, the IRS will not start processing returns until February 12, so waiting for this form is not slowing down the processing of your return at this point.

The form is available on the IRS website. Do we know when it might be available on Turbo Tax? Last thing we are waiting on to file.

Note that this is an estimate. You can follow the progress by looking at Federal Forms Availability.
