When can I start my 2017 taxes, when will you have the papers on-line? so I can start the process?

Desktop software is already available for download.  Online software will become available sometime in early December.  As fanfare pointed out, the documents you will need are not required to be provided by employers, banks, etc. until late January/early February.  

And this from the IRS:

It is actually better to wait til any "bugs" and/or "glitches"  have been fixed in the new software, so hurrying to file too early may not be to your advantage.
