Press F6, then type 8958, and fill it out

Form is already filled out. F6 does not attach it to the filing return.  Help

Return is HOH.  Does not automatically attach.  There is no question at the top to answer

8958 is only used with MFS.

Not according to the Proseries Help instructions for Form 8958.  If I can't use Form 8959, how do I report the income allocation for community property?

If they lived apart of the last 6 months of the year and qualify for HOH you wouldnt allocate community property.
