You are correct, I am not a software engineer.
But I don’t know why one cannot get some kind of timeline for this update, especially if the online one is already done and other companies have provided one.
l cannot imagine one of my customers asking for information and just blowing them off. Or even worse, ignoring them.

When will the FEDERAL returns get updated by TT for the desktop versions???? Please provide a date, not supply a link to be notified once its done.
This is to those that are EMPLOYEES of TT not those who think they know or think because a regular update is scheduled for 3/25 that this will be included in that update. Am looking for someone with actual facts
With the new guidance by the IRS yesterday that the 10,200 won't even be counted towards your MAGI, when will that update be available in the online version? I know that there needs to be code updates and testing, just trying to get an idea of when it will be available online.
Bull**bleep** during this pandemic other companies stood up except fo TT....entitled tech people who are still working while the rest of us try to make it and we have to wait for the entitled before we get our refunds
It's almost like they are intentionally delaying the update to force people use their online version and make more sales... I am going to wait one more day and then if no update will get HR block software...
And can you show me where in the article you linked to is any information about when a software update will be released that is mainly what we are asking about.
You are as tone deaf as this company is about answering a simple question.

Please review this link.
the link says NOTHING about when they will be updating the desktop software so that those of us that PAID for this can file. How about having an EMPLOYEE provide a DATE
The desktop update should be in the next scheduled update which is Thursday March 25 - late afternoon usually.
I just received a message from TurboTax support. I had sent a message on Twitter several days ago.
They said....Update not available for CD version yet but will be in a few days. No date just in a few days!
I just talked to Lisa (Employee ID #64987) at the NYS Tax Dept., and she said that they were awaiting passage of legislation dealing with this problem, and they would post a notice about what to do about getting back taxes paid on unemployment on the main Website (https://www.tax.ny.gov/default.htm) when that information is available.
