When can we prepare are taxes for this year

You can start working on your 2018 tax return now, but you can't finish it until the year has ended, the TurboTax software has been updated, and you have received all your W-2s, 1099s, and other tax documents. And you can't file your 2018 tax return until the IRS starts accepting 2018 returns. They have not yet even announced a date for that, but it will probably be around the end of January.

A preliminary version of the TurboTax CD/Download software for 2018 is available now. The preliminary version of TurboTax Online is expected to be available in a few days. These preliminary versions are incomplete and have a lot of bugs. There will be frequent updates through December and January to add missing functions and fix bugs. But you can start entering information now if you want to.
