If I have a 1099 Misc can I only upgrade to $60 and be ok to complete my taxes?
@pjsmith160 asked: "If I have a 1099 Misc can I only upgrade to $60 and be ok to complete my taxes?"
What kind of income is on the 1099-MISC? It depends on what it's for and whether there are any expenses to report with it. Rental/royalty, for example, requires Premier or higher. Any self-employed business/independent contractor with expenses requires Self-Employed Edition.. If no expenses, then Deluxe can report self-employed income.
However, instead of upgrading you may be able to use a second free product instead. It can handle all types of 1099-MISC including any expenses, if you qualify.
The other free product (TurboTax IRS Free File Program) is fully-featured and can prepare all the usual forms and schedules. It is even more powerful than Deluxe, if you qualify. For example, in addition to Schedules 1-3 it can prepare Schedule C, D, E, F, etc., and enter K-1. But one has to meet one of the qualifications to use. See below:
To qualify for free 2019 federal and state tax returns through the IRS Free File Program delivered by TurboTax, you just need to meet one of these requirements:
Your 2019 AGI is $36,000 or less (for Married Filing Jointly returns, combined AGI of both spouses cannot be over that limit), or
You qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC); or
In 2019, you served as active duty military (including Reservists and National Guard) with a maximum AGI of $69,000, and you have a military-issued W-2.
If you qualify for that program and want to use it, see these 2 FAQs:
