Schedule K-1

Turbo Tax is saying that I can't file my taxes until they access a copy of my schedule K-1 from the government.  This is holding up filing by 2 weeks.  I have a copy of the K-1, can I scan the form and attach it to speed up the process?
    No, it doesn't work like that.  The message you're seeing means that TurboTax hasn't yet been updated for the final form & instructions.  So, when you enter your K-1 information into the program, we need more time to make sure our calculations have been updated.
    • So I could have filled these forms out by hand and mailed them almost two weeks ago. If I have to wait two more weeks, I am saving no time.  Not only may this be the last year I use Turbo Tax, I am starting to wish I could have my $49 back.
    • I am in the same boat.  Luckily I have not paid turbo to file yet.  I am thinking I am going to take my paperwork to H&R or liberty tax and just get it done.  I will not use turbo tax again.
    • I've been using TT for years now, and am in the same situation.  I've just learned that they've extended incorporting the K-1 form again from 2/9-2/16!  Last year my taxes were held up for the same reason, the K-1 form was late.  Next year I think I'll go with another route rather than Turbo Tax.
    • I agree! I continually have this issue as well! No more tt for me
    • I just went over to TaxAct and did my taxes.  Not only could I submit my return, it was way cheaper than turbo tax.  The software over there is a little harder to use but for 24 dollars to do both federal and state and not having to wait, it was a no brainer.  Turbo tax lost my business.
    • I have checked with H & R Block and Hewlitt Packard.  H & R Block says 02-08 and Hewlitt Packard says 02-16.  I just called the IRS and of course they were no help whatsoever!!
    • TaxAct worked fine.... Federal has been accept and refund will be deposited on 2/15.... H&R had a waiting period.  That's why I went with TaxAct.  It was cheaper too!
    • I agree with these comments.  My return is ready to go and the K-1 is the last piece.  My accountant forwarded me the K-1 and I sat down to file my return  . . . and TurboRTax says I can't file for 2 weeks?????  That's absurd.  It will be a hassell switching to a different electronic tax filing software, but I guess I have no choice.
    • K-1 was available on on 11/16/2011.  The fault is totally with Turbo Tax, and their customer service is awful.  I will never use this product again.
    • The TurboTax software is to blame for the delay.  When I found out about it, I went to TaxAct and filed my taxes.  I just got my state refund and will get federal tonight.  It was cheaper too!  I am really mad about the delay with TurboTax.  I have been using them for years.  They lost my business and probably will not get it back.  TaxAct was MUCH cheaper.
    • I don't even have a K1 as my business closed last year, it's still asking me for one and holding up my filing..

    People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

    1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
    2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
    3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
    4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
    5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
