Depending on what your tax situation was last year, you might need to use new tax forms to claim the same deductions, credits, or forms of income. Some of the situations that are now in TurboTax Deluxe and TurboTax Live Deluxe, instead of in Free Edition, include:
- Student loan interest deduction
- Retirement savings contribution credit
- Education credits
- Child & dependent care credit
If none of this applies to you, you can use the clear and start over feature.
Note: In TurboTax Online, you can erase your return and start from scratch as long as you haven't submitted payment, deducted the TurboTax fee from your refund, or registered.
Please see the two TurboTax FAQs below for more information.
