The TurboTax Deluxe online edition is $59 and if you added a state tax return that is an additional $49 (plus any state sales taxes if applicable)


Your federal tax refund must be greater than your TurboTax account fees plus the $40 service charge ($45 for California residents) to use the Pay with Refund option.

See this TurboTax support FAQ for Pay with Refund being not allowed -

So your options are :


1) If your AGI is $73K or less you can start again using one of the totally free program options  at the IRS FREE FILE site here :


2) stay with TT  and pay the fees upfront with your credit/debit card.  If you don't have one maybe a family member or friend will help you out.  Or for $5 you can buy a pre paid debit card at almost any major store, put just  enough on the card needed to pay the TT fees and register the card online using a US based address.  Then you can use the debit card to get the refunds direct deposited to ... check with the debit card bank for the correct routing & bank account numbers  for your debit card account ... it will NOT be the number on the card.


3) find another way to file ... the IRS has fill in the blank forms that you can mail in (check with your state for their forms).

@Critter-3 TurboTax reinstated the Pay with Refund option yesterday, Saturday 08/06/2022.  Like when it was removed TurboTax did not inform anyone when it was reinstated.
