You are posting from the expensive online Self-Employed.  Do you have self-employment income?  is there a chance that you could qualify for the free software that will be available later in January that can prepare a return that requires a Schedule C?

 

 

If you qualify to use it, there is another full-featured free version of the software:

Try Free File: 

You qualify if your income was $39,000 or less, or $72,000 or less if active duty military, or if you qualify for Earned Income Credit

Or—-Use this IRS site for other ways to file for free

You can’t just “get your stimulus“ on TurboTax. You must file one complete tax return for 2020 that lists all your income, credits, and deductions in one place.  If you did not receive the correct stimulus payments in round one or round two, that tax return will also claim the recovery rebate and use it to reduce your tax bill or increase your refund, but you can never file just to get the rebate, and then file the rest of your tax return later.

 

The price to file a tax return with TurboTax depends on your unique situation and the forms that you require for that situation.  If you have self-employment income, you have to file a tax return that includes the self-employment forms. If you don’t, then you should not be agreeing to upgrade to that version of TurboTax and you should use the free version or whatever other version is appropriate for your situation.
