File a complaint with the IRS. Form 14157. Look them up under consumer affairs. They are scamming people. Maybe a class action lawsuit would work out for these idiots.

Don't use TurboTax for free. It is a bait and switch scam; totally fraudulent advertising. It is virtually impossible to find how to file for free and even if you click on the "for free" link, it takes you to the regular site. If you have used them before and paid for the service your profile is coded as a "paying" customer and you will never be able to get to the "free" filing. I called them requesting a refund for their bill as I qualify for free filing and all they did was give me an hours worth of excuses and REFUSED to refund my money. They are currently being sued by several States and under investigation by the IRS for "bait and switch" and fraud. Don't use them !

You used the Deluxe online edition and Not the Free edition for a federal tax return - $40

State tax return when using the Deluxe edition or higher - $40

Option to pay the TurbTax account fees with the federal tax refund - service charge $40

Thus - $120

See this TurboTax support FAQ for removing fees - https://ttlc.intuit.com/community/charges-and-fees/help/what-can-i-do-to-reduce-my-fees/01/26051

OR -

If you have not paid for the online edition you are using, have not filed your tax return or registered the Free edition, then you can clear your return and start over with a lower priced edition. Click on Tax Tools on the left side of the program screen while working on the 2019 online tax return. Click on Clear & Start Over.

OR -

IRS Free File Program - https://apps.irs.gov/app/freeFile/
If you are eligible you can use the TurboTax Free File Program which is free to file both a federal and state tax return. The Free File Program edition is a full featured personal tax program and on a separate website from the TurboTax online editions.

 

To qualify for free 2019 federal and state tax returns with the Free File Program, you'll need to meet at least one of these requirements:

  • A maximum 2019 adjusted gross income (AGI) of $36,000; or
  • You qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC); or
  • You served as active duty military (including Reservists and National Guard) with a maximum 2019 AGI of $69,000 (you'll also need a military-issued W-2).

Where do i file a complaint about your software

This will be the second year that turbo tax messed up my direct deposit. When i entered my account number i triple checked to make sure it was correct and for some reason the software or someone changed it by adding a zero in front causing my refund to be sent by mail. Not to mention there was no notifications of the refund being mailed. I WILL NOT BE USING TURBO TAX EVER AGAIN. Going back to Tax Act where i have no problems.

Where do i file a complaint about your software

This is the worst website I have ever been to. It's impossible to find anything.. I'm leaving this message because they won't let me leave a review of the product... Turbotax is a ripoff and they don't care... I bought the cd, installed it and when I went to do my taxes it said the reg number was invalid.. It came from intuit.. I bought a second cd, completed my taxes but didn't file.. When I went to file it would not let be get past the 'you need to download state' message.. Over and over but never downloaded state.. I had to print my taxes from the pdf and mail it in.. Wasted $200 and over a weeks time and phone calls that nobody knows an answer.. Could have done my taxes by hand in two hours and not spent any money.. WORST WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY...!!

I have attempted to file my taxes and it been on the phone with TurboTax to an hours total once on Saturday and once today there is no place for me to claim the ciovid rebate refund on TurboTax. I'm not sure why this can't be fixed and until it's fixed I am unable to buy taxes I would ask that someone get on this and fix it and please contact me at Steve [email address removed] or [phone number removed] or you will be soon to lose a customer forever

The stimulus questions are asked in the Federal Review section of the TurboTax program.  Any payment you were eligible to receive based on the 2020 Federal tax return but did not receive will be entered on the Federal tax return, Form 1040 Line 30 as a tax credit.  The credit is included in the federal tax refund or it will reduce the amount of federal taxes owed.

 

If you are not seeing the stimulus question page in Federal Review then there are 2 reasons it would be not available.

1.  You entered in the My Info section that you can be claimed as a dependent.

2.  Your 2020 AGI is to high to be eligible for the stimulus payments.  The payments are phased out if your 2020 AGI is -

• $150,000 if married filing jointly or qualifying widow(er)
• $112,500 if head of household
• $75,000 if single or married filing separately

There is no way to select the version right in the beginning. It automatically assume from the previous year's info and decide the version. To change the version, it is asking to clear and start over' which I doubt will work. It should allow to select version in the beginning. I think, this is a deliberate move by Turbotax software to mint extra Bucs from the customer ( as there is a little difference between 90 and 100 dollars for the a single customer who reaches a point of filing after entering lots of info. They simply let it go!) . This is a kind of fraud!
