Per the Feb promised date, I tried to update my return on TurboTax this morning and no dice..8606 was still missing.

I just tried the TT update a few minutes ago (6:30p Central) and the revised 8606 is now in place..it appears to be available.

As indicated earlier, FFFF uses several approved filing vendors and has a system for assigning your return to one of them.

It appears that FFFF is not able to assign returns with an 8606 to the vendors who now support the form. Rather, FFFF will not support filing until every one of the vendors supports the 8606. Any return can then be assigned to any vendor. So it comes down to the last vendor determining when FFFF will allow filing of an 8606.

As such, I have no confidence that FFFF will be ready at the latest 2/22 date, as there could still be at least one vendor that has not coded the 8606 into their program, and therefore the 2/22 date would be extended yet again.

I filed my federal income taxes this evening with FreeTaxUSA, and the IRS accepted my return in about an hour.

Got tired of waiting. I printed out my return using FFFF. I attached hand written 8606s and mailed it in a week ago. Easy peasy. :happy

02/22/2018 09:30 AM EST - Form 8606 still cannot be added to FFFF. List of available forms still indicates an availability of 02/22/2018 (today).
The last deadline was missed and the availability was updated in the afternoon. So anyone taking bets on if they'll:

1) Make the form available later today
2) Change the availability date again
3) Do nothing, leave the availability at 02/22 and still not make the form addable in FFFF

Sigh, also annoyed that FFFF has once again missed their date. Though to be fair I guess they didn't say *when* on 2/22 it would be available. Nor I guess which timezone either. Since Baker Island is a US minor outlaying island in the UTC-12 timezone I suppose we should wait until breakfast time tomorrow before casting blame...

Glad I found this thread. I was doing my taxes in FFFF today and couldn't find 8606. Hopefully it will be available soon.

I'm still not seeing form 8606 on my free fillable forms account... maybe not all the underlying contractors have put it up? Anyone else not see it yet?
