Why do I need to upgrade due to a foreign bank account?

I had a bank account in a foreign country for part of 2018. It had less than $10,000 in it, but it's still saying that I need to upgrade to TurboTax Deluxe to file Form 1040.

Why do I need to upgrade due to a foreign bank account?

If you have a foreign bank account at any time in 2018, the IRS requires that you report this account. 

If you do not wish to upgrade, there is a workaround however you will need to print and mail your return.

The foreign bank and trust accounts question is at the bottom of Schedule B. See attached and complete Part III.  You can print it out and attach it to your printed TurboTax return and mail to the IRS.
