The Free Edition can be used to enter anything directly on the new 1040. If you return required the use of any of the new Schedules 1-6, you had to upgrade to Deluxe.

Here is what the Free Edition can and can't do: https://ttlc.intuit.com/questions/1913043-is-turbotax-free-edition-right-for-me

Or you can just look at your tax return and see which additional schedules you had to use.

If there is any of the Schedules 1-6 in your tax return, whatever is on the scedule is the reason you had to update. Co workers tax returns are almost never identical.

There are 6 different schedules. Each one has different entries on it. Look at your tax return and see which one was required for your tax return.
