Warning - Problem – Schedule E on Free File Fillable Forms

Postby gkaplan » Wed Jan 30, 2013 8:09 pm

The IRS Free File Fillable Forms website opened this morning, and I noticed a glitch.

The booklet, Free File Fillable Forms FAQs and Limitations, January 8, 2013, under "Where do I locate Form 4562," states
Form 4562 is not available from the "View/Add Forms" menu .... If you are filing Schedule E, select the "add" button for Form 4562 on line 18 of Schedule E.


Line 18, however, says only "See Form 4562." I see no "add" button.

I emailed the help desk (irs.gov.websitehelpdesk@speedymail.com) this morning, but no response yet.

This thread is now in the Personal Finance (Not Investing) forum (taxes).
To some, the glass is half full. To others, the glass is half empty. To an engineer, it's twice the size it needs to be.

I have yet to receive a response; however, I think the reason why an "add" button is not active is because, apparently, the Form 4562 will not be available until March. I'm not sure what' the reason is for the holdup.
