2021 Tax Return I used the $120 package but kept getting promoted to go to the $200 package will that help get money back or owe less?

Hi, Turbo Tax,

 

My name is Kirk Patterson and I have a family of 4 I am a 1099 contractor and made $26,500 in 2021then collected $11,300 in unemployment?  I used the Turbo package that was $120 but it kept pushing me to the $200 Package.  After using the $120 package I owed the Fed $705 not counting the State of VA.  Should I use the more expensive package to reduce taxes owed and possible get a refund?  What is the real difference?

STOP ... do not pay for the online SE  program.   You are eligible for the FREE FILE thru the IRS ...  Log in there ... if you pick the TT program  then your progress can be transferred over ...

be sure to pick an offer that will prepare and e-File your state return also, if you have state income tax.
