You are posting from Deluxe.  There is a fee for federal and a separate fee for state.

You can enter a 1099R into the Free Edition.  But if you had the 10% Early Withdrawal Penalty for being under 59 1/2 you had to upgrade.

In the regular Turbo Tax Free Edition, information that you can enter is limited now.  Under the new tax laws, there are no more simple Form 1040EZ or 1040A's.  Everything goes on a little Form 1040 that has six extra "schedules" with it, and if you need any of those schedules, you are not able to use the Free Edition.

The item that upgraded you was the form 8880 for the credit on the 401K contribution.

Why not?  50 is under 59 1/2.  Did you take a withdraw from your 401K?  Did you get a 1099R? What for?

Major tax reform and major changes in the tax forms have also resulted in changes to the tax software.

WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY?  I WANT THE FREE EDITION

The information that you can enter in Free Edition is pretty limited now.  Thanks to the new tax laws, there are no more simple Form 1040EZ or 1040A's.  Everything goes on a little “postcard-size” Form 1040 that has six extra "schedules" with it, and if you need any of those schedules, you are not able to use the Free Edition.

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

Try Free File: 

You qualify if your income was $34,000 or less, or $66,000 or less if active duty military, or if you qualify for Earned Income Credit

·         Note:  If you do not qualify to use Free File then you will have to upgrade to Deluxe or higher in the paid versions of the software.   

·          Online Deluxe $59.99  State software $39.99 

·          If you choose “refund processing” to have fees deducted from federal refund, add another $39.99  ($44.99 in CA)
