Turbo tax will not allow me to select a payment because I selected free originally. Help

Are you in the regular Turbo Tax Free Edition?  Or the other Free File website?

You can’t upgrade from the Free File website.  You need to start over in regular Turbo Tax here, <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/online/">https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/onlin...>

You need to set up a new account and new username and password.   But you can use the same email address for 5 accounts.   How to start another return in the Online version     <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href="https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3288574">https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/3288574</a>

Not the answer I wanted. This is what I wanted to avoid. Not helpful.

Here's an idea.  Or what you can do is download the .tax2018 file and buy the Desktop program to continue in.  Which might save you some money since you can use a lower version.  All the Desktop programs have all the forms.  And Deluxe and above come with a free state program.  You can see them here

Sorry that's the answer.  You can upgrade from the regular Free Edition https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1913284-how-do-i-upgrade-or-switch-to-a-higher-version-of-turbotax...

But not from the Free File website.
