Can't File Federal Tax Return yet

I have received all my tax forms and have completed my Federal and state tax returns using TurboTax. I owe taxes but I want to go ahead and file my returns to avoid tax identity theft (I will wait and actually pay the tax later). But TurboTax will not let me file yet saying the Form 8606 that I need has not been released by the IRS yet. Anyone else run into this problem?

Of course if you had a taxable brokerage account you would not get those forms until mid Feb. anyway.

No taxable brokerage account for me, so I have all my forms.

I filed this morning, even though I haven't received my tax forms from FIDO. I was able to look up the tax information on the website and pencil in the numbers in the proper place.

No need to wait as all the information was available.

Cheers,

I

Schwab 1099s out Friday. USAA's are out already but TurboTax won't import until 2/16 so I typed it in (just interest, dividends, and 1 trade). Hope TT is fully capable by Friday as I think I want to file then & amend if necessary 10/15/18.

Likewise I typed it in myself Saturday morning when the brokerage forms were available from Fido. Since I already had the numbers I would have done it anyway if the forms weren't available. The Fed return shows accepted on the TurboTax site. One less thing to think about.

So I guess that those of you who have actually filed your Federal tax return using TurboTax must not have needed to file a Form 8606?

We can't file either as forms 8606 and 8936 (hybrid car) aren't finalized

My Hilliard-Lyons consolidated 1099 was posted online, but the one that actually contains a document ID (required for TurboTax import) won't be available for two more weeks.

So we just have to relax.

running into this same issue. I was going to try again on the 1st. Now I'm just going to type it in and see if it works. I swear I did that already.

Why are you concerned about possible tax identity theft?
What is the worst outcome for you that could happen, should someone else file a fake return on your behalf preceding yours?

It should be easy to identify a fraud return from a real one just to the numbers on the 1099's

OP here. I am concerned about identity theft because recently I have been the victim of identity theft where someone has stolen my social security payments by applying for social security in my name and having the benefits sent to a debit card. I have a separate thread on this.

Everyone I am working with to clear up the SS fraud recommended I file an affidavit with the IRS about the identity theft (done) and also file my tax return ASAP. There are many crooks filling fake tax returns using made up income to get refunds. I will actually owe taxes but someone could try to get a refund of my estimated tax payments using made up numbers.

I am finding this identity theft to be very stressful. I thought I had done everything right--frozen credit reports, 2 factor authentication on all accounts, strong passwords, etc but evidently that its not enough.

Just a genuine curiosity.

Having read the OP's answer to my question, I am grateful for her patience explaining her reasons for concern, and wish her best of luck.
