Does turbotax take into account the qbi deduction for sole proprietors

the new tax law added a provision allowing sole proprietors and similar entities to take a deduction for 20% of their qualified business income. I don't see where the current version of turbotax takes that into account.

This is a provision for next year.  Thus, you will see the difference on your 2018 tax return next year.  For a review of all of the tax provisions, please see this website (click on link):  Summary of Tax Act Provisions

Has it been updated?  And if so, at what point during the filing process should we expect the deduction to be applied?  Thanks!

4/14/19 It doesn't seem to work.  Spent 2h with TT support today and they have pushed me onto the Offline version which I now have to make happen at the last minute, but I can't find the download (supposedly for free with small business edition) and I guess no guarantee TT offline will calculate QBI there either.   I think this calls for a class action suit against TT for failing to calculate this deduction, and showing no indication to customers  that it is not working so Most people will not notice that they did not get it.
