2016 TurboTax CD/Download Product Guide

Here's our 2016 TurboTax CD/Download software lineup:

  • Basic – Best for simple returns where you don't need to file a state return.
  • Deluxe – Recommended if you itemize and want to maximize your deductions.
  • Premier – Extra guidance and phone help from CPAs and EAs for your investment sales and rentals. New this year, retirement tax help plus an IRA tool!
  • Home & Business – Handles your personal (1040) return along with maximizing your self-employment, consultant, or small business expenses on Schedule C.
  • Business – For corporation, S corporation, partnership, multi-member LLC, estates & trusts, and homeowner association returns.

Although Basic, Deluxe, Premier, and Home & Business all support the same tax forms and schedules, the step-by-step guidance is different (for example, Basic through Home & Business all support Schedules C and D, but Premier and Home & Business have extra guidance and interview screens geared towards investment sales and self-employment, respectively).

Also, Deluxe through Home & Business include all the features from the lower-tier version(s). This means Deluxe includes all Basic features, Premier includes all Deluxe features, and so on.
