I did do that but I get a message saying that the form needs to be updated. I’m pretty sure I know already what the tax break is but I was wondering if I could just add it manually myself

No, you cannot add the credit manually.  The Form 8936 is estimated to be available on 01/29/2020.

 

There is no need to file early as the IRS will not start accepting 2019 tax returns until on and after January 27.
