Filing with 1098-T, TurboTax prompted me to pay for upgraded version otherwise I couldnt file with it?

After opting out of upgrading, I was able to keep continue filing but it said I wouldnt be able to use my 1098 T or something along those lines. I have now to use IRS Free File by TurboTax, am I missing out on something by filing free?

Note: After continuing using the free version, I no longer have the option to upgrade, talk with a CPA or anything. I have not completed the filing.

If you use the IRS TurboTax Free File version, there is no way to upgrade. It is a completely free product.

 

You can enter your 1098-T with another provider in the IRS Free File program, if you like. Please click here to learn more.

Unfortunately, you cannot import your work from IRS TurboTax Free File into a paid version. You will have to re-enter it manually into the paid version. You can get started here
