Does turbo tax deluxe include schedule D?

and its accompanying forms

    For the 2013 tax year TurboTax Deluxe will not include the schedule D.

    The schedule D and accompanying forms are available on TurboTax Premiere however.

    • Unethical bait and switch, basic schedule D has always been there in Deluxe.  To remove it from Online version is a sign on greed and simply showing that Intuit TT is willing to trade customer loyalty for an extra $20.  It's short sited to force loyal returning customers to upgrade, as now they think twice before using TT next time.

    Why the difference this year with online and boxed product ?

    • We are just other users and don't know.  We always recommend using the Desktop CD/Download program and now especially this year.
    • why use the cd instead of online?  just curious.  thanks
    • In the Desktop program you can do unlimited federal returns and efile 5 (IRS limit).  Deluxe and above come with 1 free state PROGRAM download and you can do unlimited state returns.  You can see and enter directly into the forms.  It has a What-If Worksheet and you can save your return with a different name if you want to test out other things.  And you will always have access to your returns if you need to look at it in the future or need to amend it later.  Online shuts down each Oct and you may not be able to get your return after then.  Oh, and your return is stored on your own computer and not in a cloud online somewhere.
    • OK-thanks for all the information.  I wonder why turbotax online doesn't retain the tax return indefinitely.
    • I feel like I've been able to "print" a copy of my tax return from TurboTax online (or, rather, save it as a PDF on my own computer) in the past.
    • VolvoGirl-If another family member wants to use my desktop TT Deluxe, would he download the disc onto his computer to complete his tax return or would he need to use my TT Deluxe which is on my computer? thanks
    • It can be done either way so long as it is family non-commercial use.
    • I've used TT online for many years. I've saved a .pdf file onto my own computer every year.

    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.
