We cannot tell from the way you posted your question whether you are using desktop software downloaded/installed from a CD to your own computer or if you have been using online software.  It makes a difference in whether you can file another return without having to pay an additional fee.


When you use Online TurboTax, you get one return per fee.  Each return needs its own account and user ID.   If you use the same account and user ID for a second return, you overwrite the first one and lose it forever.

 When you use Desktop TurboTax, which you install from a CD or download to your own hard drive, you can prepare and e-file multiple returns for the cost of the software.  You can e-file up to 5 Federal returns—more if you mail the additional ones.  If you have multiple returns to prepare for family members, Desktop is more cost effective.
