Why is the year "2020" not being printed on form 8879?

IRS decided they didnt want to have to make a new form every year so they took the year out of the top corner and put a line near the top thats supposed to contain the year...but it doesnt, I guess were supposed to write it or fill it in?    Ive just been writing the year in the corner.

Very strange I guess. I am a bit OCD so that missing 2020 is going to take some time getting used to.

Once I get to the template how do I mechanically insert 2020 on the top right hand corner of the Form? Thank you.

can't put 2020 in corner---year 2020 goes on the line under part 1

So if you search for form 8879 you can enter it into the field but It doesn't automatically populate.

The year still prints on 8879-PE. In the future when we have multiple 8879's with 1040's it would be nice to have the year printed on the form.

Another decision by a non tax preparer.

It was a decision by IRS.
There is a line at the top for the year to be input.
