You appear to be using Live Basic Edition, at least that is what is under your question above.  That is essentially the same as the Free Edition (very simple returns) upgraded to have access to a CPA/EA tax expert during preparation and a review of your return prior to filing.   Live Basic usually has fees as I'll explain below.  However,  Live Basic is currently having a special promo.   It is completely free for Federal, State, the live help/review IF you file by 2/15/2021.   For details, see the top banner and the "Offer Details" link at the top of this page:

https://turbotax.intuit.com/

 

If you can't file by 2/15/2021, you can continue in Live Basic for the fees outlined below, or you might be able to switch to one of the 2 free products.    Or we can tell you how you may be able to switch to one of the 2 free products now, if you wish.

 

After 2/15/2021, here are the fees for Live Basic--$80 for Federal and $45 for state (if applicable), and if you choose to pay the fees out of your Federal refund, there is an additional $40 service fee ($45 for California filers.)
