form 3805p

I do not understand what the California Individual Forms/Form 3805P, TP/Retirement Plan Taxes/01/31/2012
I already paid my penalty for withdrawling my funds early. Not sure why I have to wait.
    There is additional California tax due on the income from early distributions from qualified plans. This is different from any premature withdrawal penalty your financial institution may have charged you. Your federal return has an additional tax form for that as well (Form 5329). The California Form 3805P will be available on or about Jan 31.
    • so why did turbo tax tell me that it would be available on the 28th??? i have tried to file last week, and now they said to wait again. whats up with that?? will i still be able to e-file?
    • I'm in the same situation and I'm pretty ticked off.  Can we be taxed any fricking more!?!?!?!?!  I, too, paid my dues when I took my early distribution and now I'm waiting for a form (that each day is supposed to be available but then says it is not until the NEXT day) so that I can file my taxes and get my refund that I so desperately NEED right now!
    • If I had known I was going to have to pay additional penalty fees for withdrawing my funds, I would have never done it. What a waste of my money to just sit around not doing anything. It's our money!!! Why are you holding it against us??
    • I chatted with a Turbo Tax agent and he said, "TurboTax goes by what the state says. As soon as CA makes the form available, the program will be able to download it and you can proceed. "

      I told him that i googled the 2011 form and found it, so it's already available.

      He said to try again tomorrow.

      Guess we'll see...
    • it is now 2/1/12 and it says wait till 2/2/12.... so how long is this going to go on.
    • I just want to take care of all of my taxes and move on. Frustrating!

    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.
