How do I switch from IRS free file to paid edition?

I converted my 2019 return to the IRS free file but I don't qualify. I cannot figure out how to upgrade to a paid version. How do I do this?

There is no process for you to upgrade from the Free File Program to the TurboTax online editions.

You will need to start a new tax return using the online editions with a new User ID - https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal-taxes/online/

Turbo tax may have fixed this because I was not finding a way to switch to a paid version after starting the federal free file product.  I clicked your link and answered the boxes about my tax situation and it recommended Turbo Tax Premiere.  I logged in, still throufh the link and it asked if I wanted to switch from gederal free to Premiere.  I confirmed and my information was all transferred over to the Premiere product.  I am glad it did as it was a couple hours worth of work.

I found a trick. Adjust your income that will disqualify you from IRS free file and then make the switch to the version you like. You can start over then as well
