My choice is to update to self-employed or "I have no expenses". I don't want to update and I DO have expenses. What do I do?

Sorry if you have expenses you have to use the Online Self Employed version or you could switch to the CD/Download program.  All the Desktop programs have the same forms so you could use a lower version.  I can tell you how.

Can you help me switch to the CD/Download program?

If you already started in the Online version you can move your return to the Desktop program even without paying for Online.  If you already paid for the Online version you can contact them to give you the program download.  

First download the .tax2018 file from the Online version,

Then see, How to Switch to Desktop,

After you get the program installed the first thing to do before you open your tax return is to update the program and install any state programs you had. Then open your file. So you first might need to start a fake return to be able to download the state program (go to FILE - NEW).

Do you need to buy the CD/Download?
