When will the 8889-T form be released in 2020?
Form 8889, Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) (Taxpayer) - estimated availability date 01/23/2020
Form 8889 and the instructions on the IRS website have a big notice as the first page that the form is being updated. When I downloaded both a few days ago they also had a Draft... watermark on every page. Today the notice is still the first page of the Instructions but not on the form and the watermark is gone from both. How do I know if the form in Turbo Tax (I'm using the desktop version, not the online version) has the updates? I'm trying to do my deceased son's taxes and want to make sure I'm answering the questions correctly so accurate instructions are important to me. Thanks.
Click the link for Federal Forms Availability for all versions of TurboTax. Then, click on whether you are using Windows or Mac. Form 8889 is available in TurboTax.
To make sure your program is completely up to date, you can do a manual update.
Our condolences for the passing of your son.
Being kept from filing cause 8889-t still doesn't seem to be ready ...is this correct ? I signed up for updates and got email from TurboTax that forms are ready but the desktop app (2019.41.11.194) doesn't seem to have an update and I still can't file because this and 8995 have a "Ready Soon" message...anyone else still see this ?
The Form 8889-T should be available for filing. Are you using a Mac? If so, try this workaround:
On the Turbotax Menu click on "Turbotax" in the upper far left, then hold down the "option" button on your Mac keyboard. When you hold the "option" button it will change the "check for updates" to read "download latest updates". While continuing to hold down the "option" button click on "download latest updates".
