Does Turbo Tax Home & Business include form 8829?

I just bought this version because my partner and I have a home-operated business which I believe can best be described as a domestic partnership.  I'm in the process of entering our info, but haven't yet seen an option to calculate the percentage of telephone / internet expenses and the like which would qualify as business (vs. home) expenses.

    All paid versions include the 8829.  Enter your expenses under the home Office question
    • It shows you are asking from Turbo Tax Business not Home & Business.    They are completely separate programs.  Please confirm which version.
    • volvogirl - It looks like I did purchase Business, and now I'm wondering if that was the wrong choice.  I'm afraid it's not geared toward using to file my partner's and my individual tax returns, just allows me to do the form 1065 partnership income return.  I'm a bookkeeper, but not an accountant, and am a bit in over my head here...  Maybe I should get on the chat line??

    Yes you need the Business program to do the partnership return.  Then you will each get a schedule K-1 which you enter into your personal return.  You need to buy a personal return program separately.

    You can use the online version or buy the desktop program here or look around at stores for sales.

    • Turbo TaxAnita - I double checked the forms included in TT Business (which is what I got), and 8829 isn't listed as far as I can see -- the forms list skips from 8826 to 8832, unless I'm looking in the wrong place...
    • Thanks for the info, Volvogirl -- although that was not the answer I was hoping for (i.e. not thrilled about having to purchase another piece of software now to do our individual taxes).  But I appreciate your taking the time to clarify.

    I was speaking of any paid version of the personal product because I saw the Home and Business in your question and missed that the icon was for Business.  A home office is, by definition, a personal expense

      People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

      1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
      2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
      3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
      4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
      5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
