Prep for one state is free, any additional state prep is an additional fee. Federal e-filing is free but e-filing anything in addition to that, including any state filing, is charged the additional fee. Basically the tax prep and the e-filing are separate line items.

I believe this is very misleading from TurboTax. I pay for the Home and Business edition and have used the product for about 19 years. This may be the last time I use TurboTax because of the way they added this fee.

I also will not be using turbo tax again..I selected the free adition like I have for many years.. an for some reason this year I am being charged 106 dollars.. mind you that I don't have in my account because I didn't receive my taxes yet because there were missing forms.. if im being charged for deluxe because I had extra forms.. then why did the IRS ask for those to be filled out after I had already completed my taxes.. Doesn't make sense!

I have used Turbo tax for years and the state was always free. I guess I read the box and assumed that the free state meant download and filing like all the previous years.  With the amount paid and the extra fees I could have paid someone else to do my taxes.  I won't be using Turbo tax again.  I noticed their commercials didn't mention that the state filing was no longer free  free free!

This is my last year using Turbo Tax, spent more on downloading and filing than I would have paid a preparer to do my taxes for me.
