Many forms and schedules are not yet ready. When the IRS/state has finalized the forms you need then you will be able to file. Click Review to see what you have to wait for. The IRS is not accepting returns until January 27, so there is no hurry to file now. Filing now would not result in an early refund.
If this is so, why did turbo tax let me file the return?? All I was trying to do was save my info and signed up for the email notification, but as soon as I hit file it sent. What does that mean ?? Do I have to ammend my return ?? Please advise
I went on the IRS website and this form is updated and ready - has been for a couple days. But TT is still not clearing my return, erroneously reporting this form is not yet ready.
Seeing it on the IRS site is not the same as the form being ready for tax software and being tested and approved by the IRS for tax software. Since the IRS is not accepting 2020 returns until February 12, you actually can wait for the form to be ready for the software.
There are a number of 2020 forms now that the 2nd stimulus passed — that are still being revised by the IRS and the states. Click on the REVIEW tab to see what form(s) you are waiting for and when it is estimated to be ready (dates are subject to change) ...
There is no reason to rush and e-file now. The IRS is not accepting 2020 returns until February 12, 2021.

And this is holding up my stimulus money; they wonder why we things people feel about government the way they do - they are sitting on money I loaned them interest free. (Some call it euphemistically payroll deduction.)
@vaardfark Congress passed a tax law change at the very end of 2020 after arguing about it for months, That 2nd stimulus bill made it necessary for many federal tax forms to be revised and for all tax preparation software to be revised. Before you blame the IRS or TurboTax take a look at your federal legislators.

I am clearly not blaming turbotax here. As to legislators vs any other branch, I am not making a distinction though i recognize the executive is trying harder than in recent memory : )
At the end of my return under the "Review" tab it says "It looks like some of your tax forms aren't ready" but the says its available 1/29/2021. That is today I went back to check and it saying the same thing "It looks like some of your tax forms aren't ready". It still won't let me file, im beyond confused??
Since the IRS is not open for Efile until February 12, you have time to resolve this.
Once the IRS form is available, it may not be incorporated into TurboTax immediately.
