Why are updates required?

Because the IRS and your state taxing authority change forms throughout the tax season, many forms included in the program weren't ready for filing at the time we initially released the program.

  • The forms that most people need will be ready by early January.
  • We release the program with draft versions of the forms that are very close to what we expect the IRS to accept for filing. This means you can get a jump start on entering your data early and don't have to wait until all of the forms you need are ready for filing.
  • We'll let you know if you have forms in your return the IRS isn't ready to accept for filing and when you can expect an update to become available. When the IRS is ready to accept your return, all you have to do is review the entries you've already made.
