NO! You do NOT have to pay TurboTax for the expensive Self-Employed version of online software to prepare that return. You can file a return for free using Free File. Not sure why the above "expert" did not tell you that. FreeFile will have all the forms and schedules you need to enter self-employment income.
If you qualify to use it, there is another full-featured free version of the software:
Try Free File:
You qualify if your income was $36,000 or less, or $69,000 or less if active duty military, or if you qualify for Earned Income Credit
If you are filing a joint return with your spouse, and you do not qualify for Free File, THEN you might have to purchase Self-Employed because of your combined income.
If you switch to Free File you must create a new account and new user ID.
