I purchased the Deluxe version but am asked to pay To E file the Federal. Why

Isn’t the federal e file free if you buy the deluxe version?

No.  You are posting from online Deluxe.  The fee for Deluxe is $59; state is another $59 if you prepare a state return.

 

See the fees here:

Or....did you make the mistake of buying the CD/download and use online instead?

 

We see people get confused and they keep logging in to online software which will require them to pay at the end.   You need to use the desktop software.   One way to tell if you are using the right software---your tool bar.   Online software has the toolbar in a black vertical column on the left side of the screen.   Desktop software has the tools up on the top of your TT screen.

 

 

You appear to be posting from online software instead of the desktop CD/download software that the license code is for.  If you are using online, you are using the wrong program.  You need to switch to the desktop software to get what you paid for.  You have to download it, update it and open it up from your own hard drive to use it.
