A new version of Lacerte 2018 loaded today.  It has reset everything back to the very beginning of 2019.  Forms show as not available.  Forms are labelled do not file.  

Anyone else have this problem?

Yes.  For 2018.

You are aware that Congress passed retroactive extenders on 12/20/19, so 2018 software had to be redone?  As the IRS was more focused on getting 2019 up and running, the necessary changes to 2018 took a back seat.

You know, I called tech support before I posted my questions.  The rep I spoke to was unaware of this, and spent a bit of time trying figure out what was going on.  I did a search on the Lacerte Support/Community page, but I am apparently not good at search words for this site, because nothing related to this came up.  None of my news updates mentioned that IRS had recently updated 2018 forms for the retroactive tax changes.  I finally found the many conversations about this by scrolling through the posts.  They were on the second and later pages.

Sorry I asked.

THAT is not the problem; the search function on this *new & improved* site is marginal (and that's an understatement...).

We've complained since the start; to no avail.
