Below, you'll find answers to frequently asked questions about Form 8830, Enhanced Oil Recovery Credit, in ProConnect Tax.

For tax year 2023, Form 3800 is undergoing a major IRS rewrite that expands the form to 8 pages. This form is still in development, pending a future release. Form 1120S and 1065 filers that require Form 3800 may want to consider filing extensions.
