HSA contributions in 2020 and distributions in 2021

I made an $8000 contribution to my HSA account in December 2020.   I withdrew $8000 from my account in January 2021 for 2020 medical expenses.   My HSA provider is not providing a 1099 SA or 5498 SA since I made no withdrawals in 2020, only contributions.   Turbo Tax allows me to input 2020 contributions and distributions.   Can I still make a 2020 deduction even though I didn't get a 1099 SA form or 5498 SA?   T

since the distribution did not occur until 2021 that's the year to report it.

The contribution, however, must be reported on your 2020 tax return.  You'll get the Form 5498-SA later in 2021, after the regular filing deadline for your tax return, so you'll just make your contribution entry based on your personal knowledge of the contribution made for 2020.
