How do I downgrade to Plus and finish filing without starting over?

I have already paid for Plus and entered my bank deposit info, but then clicked on the deluxe to see how my return would change. It's not enough to make sense so I want to stay at Plus but it won't let me downgrade now. I'm literally to the point of filing, and I DO NOT want to clear and start over.

Unfortunately, the only way to downgrade in TurboTax Online is to Clear and Start Over.

That's a horrible answer and makes me want to start over with a different provider if I have to start all over again. You pushed me into self-employed version then did not give anything better than the standard deductions.

You can downgrade the TurboTax version you are using by using our clear and start over feature in TurboTax Online as long has you haven't submitted payment, deducted the TurboTax fee from your refund, or registered, please see this TurboTax FAQ for more information:

You may be able to remove fees as well as downgrade to another version of TurboTax.

 

Review My Fees to find out what fee or fees that you are being charged. 

  • Down the left side of TurboTax, click on Tax Tools.
  • Click on Tools.
  • Click on My Fees in the center of the screen. 

Now you can see what you have been charged.  This TurboTax Help will give you information how to remove a state tax return and/or charges that you do not want to pay.

 

To remove all fees and start over, you can click Tax Tools, then Clear and start over at the bottom left of the screen.

I agree. Horrible way of doing business. No more turbo tax after this.

This literally just happened to me. I don't know WHY I'm I Self Employed. I've used TurboTax for years and would never have knowingly chosen Self-Employed. There NEEDS to be a DOWNGRADE option. 

 

The following does NOT allow you to remove fees related to versions. Nor can you remove / downgrade in the FILE section.

You can try to downgrade to a lower version but you will have to clear and start over.  If you have registered you might not be able to clear.

If you have registered or it won't let you clear to start over you can just abandon this account and start over with a new account.  How to start another return in the Online version

Or see if you qualify for the Free File program.  You can start it at a special website.  It may even bring over your return so you don't have to start over.  Click on Sign In at the top right

How to switch to the Free File website

Or one thing you can do is buy a lower version of the Desktop program like Deluxe.  Then you can switch from Online without starting over.  You can download the .tax2019 file from online for free and open it in the Desktop program (any version).  And the Desktop program has several other features and benefits over the Online version too.
