Do they only sell that as software (CD or download code?)i pay $200 for turbotax
the different versions offer more if you have a business/self employed
plus audit defense and all the other upsell shit they try to get you for
I've done it all online, but some of the tax changes that didnt apply in 2019 (home office/itemized deductions for W2) needed me to download the software and manually remove those forms from my return, since it automatically carries over as much info as it can from the previous year. Otherwise, yes, you can do even the more complex stuff online.I've never used it, but I would think they could just make the same options available online, no?
I don't think schedule c is covered with the free version, is it?not unless you have a situation that warrants double-checking your work to guarantee there isn't more you should do.
I did Deluxe Online this year @ 40 for Federal because I sold a house and wanted to make sure I wasn't fucking up. I could've gotten away w/ free and not entered that I sold the house at all. But meh. Deluxe reminded me about deductions via donations I made in 2020 that allowed for me not to owe on state.
I did Deluxe Online years past while I had the house as I deducted mortgage insurance and other house shit and it ended up a better return.
but nowadays w/ the new personal deductions being so high at 12,400 really only reason not to go free, is if you have some situation that warrants it. like expenditures you want as deductions. that type of shit.
don't believe it is. if you are self-employed, have anything like rental properties, anything at all beyond "I work and pay taxes and rent and did absolutely nothing at all this year." I wouldn't go free.I don't think schedule c is covered with the free version, is it?
