It is possible that you may have added an add on that required an upgrade or that your tax situation required an upgrade to your account. To see what you are being charged for please follow the instructions in the following FAQ.


If you have not yet filed your tax return, then proceed to follow the directions in the FAQ below to remove all unwanted add ons.


There is an additional charge for state taxes with all products, except Free Edition.


Also, if you elect to pay your TurboTax fees with your refund, there is a fee for that as well.

Why is it charging me 120 dollars when it inly said 40 dollars for the deluxe

@ ela030520 

Is it this?   Here are typical charges in Online Deluxe:

Federal return $40

State return $40

Choice to pay the fees out of the Federal refund:  $40 service fee ($45 for California filers


If you used all three items, that would total $120 plus sales tax, if applicable.  ($125 in California).


If you chose to pay the fees out of your Federal refund, and if you haven't already filed, you can remove that option and pay upfront with credit/debit card or a prepaid debit card you can buy in a store.


Most states will need to use this method to remove that "pay out of refund" option:


Users in California can remove that payment method with this method (where it is bundled as "Premium Services") :
