I actually found the answer on a 2018 question.  The trick is to efile your federal tax return first.  Once you have done that the state part will only charge you the 19.99 charge.  The audit defense charge disappears....  thx tho.

Yep...That works.  Did not know you were using the TurboTax desktop CD/Download editions.
