Adding form 8978 and 8978 schedule A

Shaffer78

When a partnership amends a past K-1, they use forms that need to be reported on form 8978 in the current year. The amendment is already complex enough, but to prepare it manually, and then not being able to efile because the form has to be attached can make some of these rather challenging. It was bad enough that I had to do the partnership amendment manually on pdf forms, and I'm not looking forward to doing a bunch of forms 8978 now in order to prepare their individual returns.  

Please add form 8978 and schedule A form 8978 and allow it to be efiled.

What do we do if we still want to e-file and file an 8978?  Attach a .PDF using other?

This form is badly needed.

I would also like to see it added to Pro Series. Very complex and time consuming doing manual entries on pdf format.
