I am trying to complete my return but when i pay, i am being charged for a Schedule C even though I do not have self employment income. Why am i being overcharged?

I have not been self employed since 2015.  Why do i have to pay for that form?

You either started with or upgraded to the Self-Employed online edition from the Free online edition for a federal tax return - $120

State tax return when using the Deluxe edition or higher - $50

Option to pay the TurbTax account fees with the federal tax refund - service charge $40

 

See this TurboTax support FAQ for checking your fees - https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/charges-and-fees/help/how-do-i-review-my-fees-in-turbotax-online/0...

See this TurboTax support FAQ for removing fees - https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/charges-and-fees/help/what-can-i-do-to-reduce-my-fees/01/26051

OR -

If you have not paid for the online edition you are using, have not filed your tax return or registered the Free edition, then you can clear your return and start over with a lower priced edition. Click on Tax Tools on the left side of the program screen while working on the 2019 online tax return. Click on Clear & Start Over.

OR -

Use the TurboTax Free File program if you are eligible - https://freefile.intuit.com/
If you are eligible you can use the TurboTax Free File Program which is free to file both a federal and state tax return. The Free File Program edition is a full featured personal tax program and on a separate website from the TurboTax online editions.

 

To qualify for free 2019 federal and state tax returns with the Free File Program, you'll need to meet at least one of these requirements:

  • A maximum 2019 adjusted gross income (AGI) of $36,000; or
  • You qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC); or
  • You served as active duty military (including Reservists and National Guard) with a maximum 2019 AGI of $69,000 (you'll also need a military-issued W-2).

You are posting from online Self-Employed software.  if you are not self-employed and do not have income as an independent contractor, then you should have downgraded to a  less expensive version of the software.  If you have not paid or registered yet, you can clear and start over in a less expensive version of the software like Deluxe or Premier.  Be aware that literally means starting over.

 

CLEAR AND START OVER
