Why do I have to upgrade from Free Edition?

Free Edition is intended for taxpayers with simple returns – for example, taxpayers filing Forms 1040EZ or 1040A and taking the standard deduction.

If we detect that your tax situation requires expanded coverage, like deductions for owning a home or self-employment income, we'll prompt you to upgrade to a version that supports the forms you need so we can maximize your tax deductions and ensure you file an accurate return.

Remember, when you upgrade to a higher-tier version, we also give you 24/7 access to all your TurboTax Online returns both past and present.
