No, the HSA entries are require an upgrade to TurboTax Deluxe version even if no money was used from the account.

  • In the search box, upper right type hsa > jump to hsa > 
  • Continue to make the required entries about your health savings account (HSA)
  • Click the screenshots attached to enlarge and view for assistance.

For more information about this entry review the information below.

I filed for like 4 years for free, with an HSA.  I also DO NOT pay for TurboTax, as I am remarkably cheap.

There are 2 free versions. In the regular Turbo Tax Free Edition, information that you can enter is limited now.  Why do I have to upgrade from the Free Edition?
https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/upgrading/help/why-do-i-have-to-upgrade-from-free-edition/00/26379

To go back to a lower version or the Free Edition you can try to clear and start over https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/using-turbotax/help/how-do-i-clear-and-start-over-in-turbotax-onli...

OR There is also The Turbo Tax Free File program which is free for federal and state.  And has more forms than the Federal Free Edition, like Schedules A, B, C , D, E, F, EIC, H, K-1, SE,  etc.

To qualify for the Free File website  you just need to meet one of these 3 things
AGI $36,000 or less
Active duty military with AGI of $69,000 or less
OR qualify for EIC (earned income credit.)

In order to use the Free File program, you have to start it at a special website. Try signing in at the top right

Nothing but grift, these scumbags are required by law to offer free filing an HSA doesn't change that reporting this to the fed.

They do offer free filing.  2 ways.  Either the regular Free Edition or as one of the IRS Free Filing.

The fact that you have to use a special URL to access the program as a returning user is total BS and mostly a way for Intuit to scam us out of $110 filing fee. 

I for one will not return to use Intuit in the future if they continue to require "deluxe version" to file if you have a simple HSA.
