Why is it making me pay?

You are posting from the most expensive online version--Live Self-Employed.  Did you not pay attention to the screens as you upgraded?  Did you use the services of a live expert or CPA as you prepared your return?  If not, you can get rid of the "Live" feature-https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/4140092-how-do-i-remove-turbotax-live

Do you need Self-Employed--do you have income from self-employment or from being an independent contractor?

If not, you can clear and start over in a lower version--but you will start from scratch   https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/2586254-how-do-i-clear-and-start-over

Is there a chance that you qualify to use the Freedom Edition?  

You cannot enter a 1099Misc or self-employment income when you are using the Free Edition.  If you qualify, there is another free software program available from TurboTax which will allow you to enter self-employment income.

Try Free File: 

You qualify if your income was $34,000 or less, or $66,000 or less if active duty military, or if you qualify for Earned Income Credit

Making the change to the Free File (also called Freedom Edition) means you have to use a different account and different user ID and start over.
