Can I claim tax prep fees as a deduction if i own my LLC and worked part time for a company that gave me a W-2?

I worked for 3-4 months in a job that provided a W-2 in the state of California. I then proceeded to start my own business via a LLC. When doing my taxes, intuit stated that i needed to upgrade to Turbo Deluxe to be able to file Schedule C. Where would I take that deduction? Or how would i split the cost given that I have a self-employed and job income? Any help would be great because it states that paying for the deluxe version practically pays for itself by being a tax deductible item.

Yes, you can deduct the full cost as a business expense on Schedule C.  I would just list it in "Other Expenses".   No need to allocate, just deduct the full amount.
