his keeps screwing me up. I was supposed to have bought the software version that is for a single member LLC. But everytime I look for forms for example, I saw a question that said what version turbotax do I need to a schedule c, and the answer is self employed, but I have home and business. I feel so dumb tonight.
In some ways, yes; in some ways, no.
The Self-Employed Edition is the old online version of Home and Business. The name of the online product changed this year for 2016.
The desktop software (CD/download) is still called "Home and Business."
The desktop version (Home and Business) is more fully-featured. It can prepare multiple returns, includes a state program, and has Forms Mode for viewing/editing forms during preparation.
In the online editions, only Self-Employed can prepare a Schedule C with expenses. But in the desktop editions, all editions can prepare Schedule C.
As I said above, the Home and Business Edition is a better product than the online Self-Employed. It does everything online Self-Employed can do and more. It also includes a state program as part of the purchase. (there is a 24.99 fee to efile a state return--except no fee for New York state. Also no fee to print and mail the state return.)
Home and Business has the popular feature Forms Mode which can be very handy if you have to view/edit something on one of the forms.
"One of these also does your quarterly sales tax filing if I am not mistaken?"
I haven't heard anything about that. I don't think either of those 2 products would do that for a state. I'm just a fellow user though.
