Is there a reason form 8879 is not available? I don't see it listed in Forms either.

I get a critical diagnostic message stating "form 8879 is not available for this program"

Yes, because it isn't ready yet.

ProConnect Form Status (intuit.com)

What is the difference between:

"Final form without watermark is expected to be released on January 26, 2021" (Sch C) and
"
The form is not final and is watermarked" (Form 8879, Form 8995)?

"The form is not ready" is not the only reason that the form is not included. Both Sch C and form 8995 (same status as form 8879) are included, but form 8879 is not, I believe the other reason is form 8879 does not affect computation.

If draft version of the form 8879 is included (it is not included right now) then we can have it paper signed and finish the transaction. So there is value for the form to be included even though it is not finalized and cannot be e-filed.

I understand you do not control this, but just want to get an opinion and what we can and cannot do, and hope intuit sees this. Thanks.

I use Lacerte and it is "not final" yet.  How is it that H & R Block is completing returns and getting signatures on this form and we can't???

Since we've got another 23 days before we can Efile, they dont seem to be in much of a hurry to get the 8879 ready
