Why the [profanity removed] is there $133 worth of fees just to file my taxes this year AND THEN another $40 just to pay for the other $133 using my refund? Almost $200 just to file

Turbo Tax clearly states at checkout, unless you use a credit card there are convenience fees.

Before submitting your tax return the ONLINE version automatically determines which version you "require" based on all the relevant data you entered into the system. Even if you met with an agent in-person the same thing would have likely happened. Everyones tax situation is different, so it helps knowing ahead of time what version you need, so there aren't any surprises. Any version of Turbo Tax software can be purchased online at a discount.

That is wrong information.  You can use the Free Edition with any filing status, Single, Married, MFS, HH etc.  And you can have dependents.  You can enter interest and dividends.


In the Turbo Tax Free Edition, information that you can enter is limited now.  Why do I have to upgrade from the Free Edition?
