Get your taxes done using TurboTax

You need to explain more for anyone to know what you are experiencing.

 

I'm not sure why you mention $90.  Where did that come from?

Underneath your question above, it appears you are using Online Deluxe, which is currently $40 for a Federal return and $40 for a state return.   That would total $80 if you have both returns.    If you choose to pay that out of your Federal refund, however, there is an additional $40 service fee for that payment method ($44.99 for California filers).  But if you chose that option, you can avoid that service fee by first removing that payment option and then paying by credit/debit card or a prepaid debit card you can buy in a store.

 

Or is the $90 figure the $80 product fees (if both Fed and state) plus some sales tax?

 

Or does the $90 you mentioned refer to the optional Live Deluxe upgrade for help from a CPA/EA tax expert?  Live Deluxe is an upgraded version of Deluxe that is $90 for Federal and $50 for state, and allows for on-demand help from a tax expert and a final review of your returns prior to filing.

 

Check your fees this way:

With your return open, go to the left menu column.

Click on TAX TOOLS, then TOOLS.

In the Tools popup window choose MY FEES.
