Do I have to re-buy TurboTax every year?

I bought it last year and this year, it wants me to pay again. I'm not trying to be rude. I'm just asking.

Do I have to re-buy TurboTax every year?

Yes...whether Desktop software, or Online Software, you have to purchase it every year.

____________________________________

Exception:  The Online "Free" version will let you file for Free ...for Federal & State early in the tax year...or with a state charge if you wait too long (sometime in late Feb or March).

BBBBBBUT !  The Online Free version can only be used with the very simplest of tax returns (1040EZ, 1040A)...no itemized deductions, no Self-employment income, no Brokerage or Mutual fund transactions.  And Online Free does not allow you access to your prior-year tax files unless you pay ($30 this year).
