When will Turbotax have form 7202-t online?

Would it be a bad idea to efile and send form 7202 in mail separately?

When will Turbotax have form 7202-t online?

Yes, mailing form 7202 is a bad idea. Your form 7202 will probably be thrown out by an IRS agent since it is not one of the approved situations where you mail something after e-filing.

 

  • This will cause your return to be delayed and a letter sent to you requesting the form since the Form 7202 was missing from your return.

Eligible self-employed individuals are entitled to claim qualified sick and family leave equivalent credits.

 

To be an eligible self-employed person, both the following must be true.

1. You regularly carried on a trade or business within the meaning of section 1402.

2. You would have been: a. Eligible to receive qualified sick leave wages under the Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act if you had been an employee of an employer (other than yourself), and/or b. Eligible to receive qualified family leave wages under the Emergency Family and Medical Leave Expansion Act if you had been an employee of an employer (other than yourself).

 

Each eligible self-employed individual must file a separate Form 7202. If filing a joint tax return and both spouses are eligible self-employed individuals, each must attach a separate Form 7202 to the joint tax return. You must maintain appropriate documentation to show that you are an eligible self-employed individual.

Other online tax preparers  like TurboTax are efiling this form for their customers so why can’t you?

  • Form 7202 Credits for Sick Leave and Family Leave for Certain Self-Employed Individuals is a new form for the tax year 2020.
  • IRS instructions can be found here.
  • The IRS has released a Frequently Asked Questions page.
  • The IRS does not yet support Form 7202 as an e-fileable form.  The completed Form 7202 will need to be added as a PDF attachment for e-filing purposes.   At this time, you cannot attach PDF files to a tax return you want to e-file in TurboTax personal tax prep products.

Wait - what?

 

In order to properly use this new IRS government form, we will no longer be able to e-file?

 

Is that what I'm understanding?

If I plan to file form 7202 on my tax return this year, I will have to mail in the entire tax return instead of e-filing??

Yes and other tax preparers online ARE able to efile this document but NOT turbo tax. It’s ridiculous.

this is a disaster!  TurboTax needs to support e-filing, as a .pdf or whatever, if other providers can!!  Self-employed people have complicated returns and it's not acceptable to find out after weeks or months of work in Turbo Tax that TurboTax for home AND BUSINESS does not support e-filing a critical form!!
