I bought TurboTax 2018 at Costco and provided that information at the beginning of creating my return on Turbo Tax. I am stuck in a page that requires me to pay $44.95, even though I did not click the "Add Audit Defense" button on the previous page. I should not be asked to pay anything beyond what I paid for my Turbo Tax purchase.
That is to pay the 24.99 state efile fee. There is an EXTRA 44.99 to deduct the 24.99 from your federal refund. So click on pay with credit card. Or you can print and mail state for free. Read the whole screen close!
