What's the difference between Freedom Edition and Free Edition?
Here are the differences between these similar-sounding TurboTax products:
TurboTax Freedom Edition is geared towards lower-income filers, regardless of tax return complexity, and is only offered through the IRS Free File Alliance (FFA) program. No upgrades are available, but state returns are free.
TurboTax Free Edition, on the other hand, can be used by higher-income filers but only handles simple returns (1040EZ and some 1040A returns). Upgrades and add-ons, such as TurboTax PLUS and Audit Defense, are available.
Still not sure which one is right for you? Then we suggest starting with TurboTax Freedom Edition. If you don't meet the Freedom Edition qualifications, we'll give you the opportunity to switch over to Free Edition.
