Can I file my W-2 and 1099G under the free filing?

Yes, if you meet the following qualifications for FREE edition.

TurboTax free edition is for simple tax returns (1040EZ/1040A) with standard deductions. If your return is more complex you will not be able to use the free edition.  

You can use the free edition if you: 

  • Made less than $100,000
  • Don't own a home or rental property
  • Didn't sell investments
  • Don't own a business or have 1099-MISC income
  • Don't have any major medical expenses

Does this answer still apply to this question, one year later?

No.

If you have a 1099-G you will be forced to buy deluxe for $60.  Speaking from experience.

Yes, if you are poor and unlucky enough to have been unemployed, Intuit will greedily charge you a fee for being low income. Use the IRS website to find a cheaper provider. Only use Intuit if it is really free, which is rare.

Hello DeniseF1,

Would you please confirm that free filing for W-2 and 1099G still working for the 2020 Tax return?

Thank you for your time.

WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY?  I WANT THE FREE EDITION

 

The information that you can enter in Free Edition is pretty limited now.  Thanks to the new tax laws that began for 2018 returns, there are no more simple Form 1040EZ or 1040A's.  Everything goes on a Form 1040 that has three extra "schedules" with it, and if you need any of those schedules, you are not able to use the Free Edition.  Using the standard deduction instead of itemizing does NOT mean you will not need any of those schedules.https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/4511011-what-happened-to-the-1040a-and-1040ez

If you qualify to use it, there is another full-featured free version of the software:

Try Free File: 

You qualify if your income was $39,000 or less, or $72,000 or less if active duty military, or if you qualify for Earned Income Credit

Note:  If you do not qualify to use Free File then you will have to upgrade to Deluxe or higher in the paid versions of the software.   

Online Deluxe $40  State software $40

 

 

Or—-Use this IRS site for other ways to file for free

Thank you for your prompt reply.

But basically, the short answer will be .... NO

I can not use the free edition to file W2s and 1099G.
