You do NOT NOT NOT need the most expensive H&B version ... you can use the Deluxe instead.

I have attached a link with instructions on how to obtain the 2018 program so you can prepare your 2018 tax return.

 

You will need the Home and Business version of the software so you can report your personal items as well as your business activity.

Beware ... the program will SUGGEST upgrading to the H&B version but it is NOT REQUIRED ... be smart and say NO.
