Free CPA consultation

When I complete my return, I was offered a free CPA consultation.  Since I had a question about a new SE deduction, I requested a call and the popup showed I would receive a call within 5 minutes.  Less than a minute later the phone rang and before I could answer, the call terminated with a message saying "sorry you missed our call, we won't call again".  Of course, you can't reach a human being at TT to explain the situation and get the opportunity to talk to a CPA...unless you want to pay $200.  Has this happened to anyone else, and if so, were you able to get any assistance from TT?  Is the "free consultation" a bogus offer?

Solved.  I started back through the program and the free consultation popped up again.  I was able to use it and spoke to a young man who answered my question.  I asked him when the deduction in question became part of the tax code, and he said 2018.  While we talked, he checked my 2018 return and thinks I might get a $600 refund by filing an amended return.  Thanks!

@BJwilliams We have no way to re-connect you from this forum.  You will need to initiate another call with them.
