This is a poor pricing strategy on Turbotax's part. You are correct, its shady of them to let you get so far before telling you you have to pay such a hefty price! You can go through another online tax service provider and save a ton of money. After investing hours on TurboTax only to find out I'd be charged an ADDITIONAL $114 to claim standard gas deduction for Uber, I went through H&R Block. It was much easier to navigate, and after a coupon, it only cost $54.99 WITH Schedule C support included. I hope this helps!!
