It can't possibly generate the 2004 Form 8283 since the Form hasn't been released yet. I would assume that next year's version of It's Deductible will print the form.

Hmm . . . I thought the 8283 was one of those "generic" forms. I mean, I'm sitting here looking at a copy (granted I printed it last tax season) and I don't see a date anywhere on it. Or a place to put one other than listing the dates of contributions. It says it was last revised in Oct 1998, that's it.

When you go to the IRS website, you don't get listings for "2003 Form 8283" or "2004 Form 8283." It's just "Form 8283 (Rev. Oct 1998.)"

Besides, I'm using the 2004 version of the software and all info I put into it pertains to the 2004 tax year. Next year's version will be 2005. And I'm sure I printed form 8283 on previous versions of the software long before the tax year was through. I'm one of those people who tries to project what this year's taxes will be from the beginning of the year and update as needed as I go along.

I'm afraid they may have done away with that in this year's version. Or perhaps, as was mentioned, an update later this year will install it? It kind of doesn't look like it though from the way the software is set up (and no mention of it that I can find...)
