Unfortunately, the 1099G is not covered in the free edition. If you have not already paid the filing fee, you are free to file elsewhere. If you want to clear out your information, you can use the "clear and start over feature". https://ttlc.intuit.com/replies/4248526

WHY DO I HAVE TO UPGRADE TO A DELUXE BECAUSE I CLAIMING A 1099G FORM FOR 59.99 OTHER WEBSITE DONT ASK TO BE CHARGE

Intuit and Turbotax and very greedy and like to bait and switch. They lure bait people in wanting to IRS free file and then limit income at $36,000 or switch to $60. They bait and lure people in with higher incomes to regular free file and then charge $60 for a 1099. Both of unethical, immoral and dishonest practices. Luckily there are a bunch truly free ways to file. Find the list from the IRS website. This bait and switch is called Dark Patterns. They are tricks used in websites and apps that make you buy or sign up for things that you didn't mean to.

Depending on what your tax situation was last year, you might need to use new tax forms to claim the same deductions, credits, or forms of income. Some of the situations that are now in TurboTax Deluxe and TurboTax Live Deluxe, instead of in Free Edition, include:
