IRS site states this form is ready 1/24/20. Why is turbo tax not let me file stating form will be ready soon.

TurboTax, just like all other tax preparation software providers, has to get the form approved by the IRS before it becomes available for filing using the software.

Turbotax does not have this form available for amending my 2018 return even though the same form is used for 2018, 2019 and 2020.  This IRS Form was released by the IRS in January, 2020.  I cannot file my amended 2018 return until this form is populated on Turbotax - including 2018 tax filings.  Do you have any idea when the software will be updated?  I use the cloud version.

The 2018 amend software has not yet been finalized for the Tax Extenders passed by Congress in December 2019.  See this TurboTax support FAQ - https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/tax-topics/help/2018-extenders-passed-under-taxpayer-certainty-and...
