IRS Form 8915-F is final and the instructions state it can be e-filed.

It is unsat for the turbo live product to not include Form 8915-F when it is available from the IRS hard copy and efile, as well as, from other software companies. It is expensive to file live on turbo and their unwillingness to be up to date is indicative of their preference to push higher pried products using their tax experts rather han to be an effective product for those of us using turbo live who do not need an advisor. I will finish using another software product and because I have already paid in turbo I will not be will not be using them next year

It may take longer for one form or another to show up in TurboTax for multiple reasons. Our goal is to provide you with the most accurate information possible. As part of this process, we communicate often with the taxing agencies. I have provided the Forms availability link below so you are able to check the dates for the different forms. If the dates do change, it would be posted there:

This is the only form holding me up from submitting.  How on earth can it take turbotax over a month to make it available to efile??  Please pull that 3/31/22 date to the left or I will have to use another service to file.

In the same boat and completely agree, totally unacceptable.  The date has moved later several times.

Will be exploring other options, for simple returns not worth the $$.

According to the IRS website:   "Form 8915-F can be completed electronically and e-filed with your tax return.

 

What exactly is TurboTax waiting for?!?!?   This form is available online on other tax services.  The *ONLY* reason I am waiting with TurboTax is because of "ItsDeductible" contributions, and at this point, I would almost rather enter those manually than wait another month. 

 

As the most expensive tax prep software out there, Turbotax should be the most up-to-date and the quickest.    Is there any reason to not use "Other reportable income" and then just revise the return with that form if TurboTax ever decides to release it?

I understand under-promising and over-delivering, but 3/31 sets the bar so low it's almost not believable. TurboTax needs to understand the significance of this document situationally. I don't care how frequently it's used or in what % of filings, the impact is significant and this should be escalated.

Yep. Looks like it's time to start using one of the other guys. I had a customer service agent directly lie to me earlier blaming the form unavailability on the IRS. They clearly are doing this on purpose to push people to Live.  Ridiculous.

I am a long time TT user, but this situation has delayed my return over 30 days.  This issue should be elevated to the highest level and resolved by the end of today.  Completely unacceptable to publish a date at the end of March to integrate the 8915-F.

One programmer can solve this in a matter of hours, and a review and QC could be done in short order.  TT has completely dropped the ball on this, and needs to take action to fix it ASAP, or I will take my business elsewhere...permanently

Wait, what? Why will it take 30+ days to provide this to the community? I mean the form is ready and the IRS even has an instruction sheet explaining how to use the form. At bare minimum, you can at least offer the form as is, without TT help, and allow people fill it out themselves, until TT actually gets it hard coded into the system fully. You're Turbo Tax. You're not Turbo Mart. That means you need only to focus on one thing, taxes. So do that! I love logging in and see "File by February 28 to lock in the discounted price." Of course, I can't do that because TT doesn't feel that 8915-F is a priority. I have tot fall in line with everyone else. You're no longer the only kid on the block, and treating your customers poorly and providing subpar service isn't in your best interest. I just searched and a competitor does have it available. Hmmm....
