Turbotax filing delays

Is anyone else waiting for Form 8960 to be updated in Turbotax so that you can file your federal tax returns? Turbotax has been showing "available soon" for this form for over a month. I saw an article on the internet stating the new forms were published by the IRS yesterday, but apparently Turbotax is still reviewing them and will not update their software unit March 6th now. I don't remember ever having to wait this long before being able to file my federal tax returns.

They didn't have enough lead time to get that form done.

According to this link form 8960 is now supported and available:
and an explaination for the delay:

It is the interaction of the 8960 with forms 4835 8814 and Schedules c,e,f,and k-1 that is the problem. The IRS instructions were in draft form. They say that the processing based on the final instructions should be out the middle of next week.

I used Turbo Tax Deluxe and form 8660 for a Roth conversion with a basis. I have my state refund and the federal refund has been mailed as of yesterday. I forgot to DD the federal one. I think the update for form 8606 might have to do with any mutual funds investment maybe? My state was rejected because Turbo Tax had to update a form and it told me click on the button to update and I did and it was accepted within minutes. This was the around Valentines Day when I e-filed. I would contact Turbo Tax and let them update if you dont have a fix it button. I know last year I had some issues because I bought a new Apple Computer and it does not have a place for a disk and they did not support form 8606 when doing it in the cloud? So they helped me download the program on my computer but I lost all my input and had to start over and they gave me a free Turbo Tax Deluxe for state and federal e-file. I had disclaimed my husband traditional IRA's and did a small conversion and took his RMD for that year as required and had a horrible time but their lawyers spent 3 hours and 45 minutes with IRS and me getting it to work and in the end the federal went OK but not the state so they told me to just print and send it. Everything went fine last year and this year also with another conversion and the separating of the basis and giving the contingent beneficiaries their share of the basis. Have used Turbo Tax for as long as I have had a computer. I love their support and tax lawyers and community support.
