Stay away from TurboTax Deluxe this year if you need Schedules C, D, E, or K-1. The 2014 version will not let you e-file if you use these schedules.

Check the reviews on Amazon.com for details. The HR Block software is recommended as a substitute. It's significantly cheaper and can import details from last year's TurboTax summary.

Thanks for the information, but it's important to note that there are 4 different versions of TurboTax.

The TurboTax website itself has all the detailed information on each version.

Anyone can simply pay the nominal difference in price for the Premier version with Schedule D, or else the Home & Business version for self-employed people. They are simply changing the versions slightly from the past to align them with specific non-standard tax-filing needs.

Schedule C is needed only for self-employed P&L (sole owners).
Schedule D is needed only for reportable Capital Gains.
Schedule E is used for rental income, receive royalties, or have income reported on a Schedule K-1 from a partnership

No impact for most people filing their taxes...and none here either...so sticking with TurboTax Deluxe.

The more accurate statement would be that the Deluxe version from past years no longer supports these schedules.
Your clarification is not clearer nor is it a more accurate statement. The older versions didn't include the schedules but they still allowed you to insert the results from the schedules and e-file.

For the specific class of taxpayers that was clearly defined, it is the significant reduction in functionality that billsharpe makes it out to be.

Why Intuit did it doesn't matter. The fact that they removed functionality from the basic paid product does matter to those who had been previously getting by with a $50 cheaper edition.

Turbo Tax is getting expensive.

Thanks.
I have been using the Basic version from day 1. It has, in the past, always done the sale of stocks for me. From their own web site it appears that there is no longer a Basic version and the comparison down the page a ways does show that the Deluxe no longer does the sale of stocks.

I guess I will now have to get the Premier for almost twice the price. DANG IT !!!

Jimmie -- there is a Basic version listed for the CD/Download versions. But not if you use Online TurboTax.

But you're correct, if you select "Sold Stock or Bonds/Own Rental Property", you're told the Premier is the TurboTax product you need to purchase.

Actually, they upgraded us for free:



Of course, we started by using the auto-transfer from last year's return.

Now whether I'll buy Premier next year, we'll see.

Apparently it is - the full listing of the 4 different versions and the schedule distribution by version is listed in my post (which was not included in the original post). That is needed very important to understand IF and how those schedules may impact tax payers using the product/version.

Perhaps you need to read it again, unless you're posting just to argue.

Good added information that people have the availability to upgrade for free if the added schedules are needed by using the Deluxe version this year!

Your statement (that has subsequently been removed from your post) was not factual.

Suggesting that there are other versions does NOT change the issue that it used to work and now it doesn't.

One should not summarily ignore the expressed limitation of "Because you're a TurboTax Advantage member" (automatic renewal).

More than 50% off. NIce. Here's a price comparison chart. TaxACT looks like the best deal. Not sure if it can import previous years from the competition. I know that a few years ago, I was able to go from TT one year to H&R block the next and then back to TT the year after that.

That price comparison is for software for tax year for 2013.

Unless the government gives me a discount for e-file, I never will. I will print out paper forms. This is the least efficient method for the government. Anything to cause it pain.
I can understand that...paying an additional fee for that service does seem somewhat unreasonable.

That said, we e-file each year and get the return processed quickly and have an electronic receipt for documentation. Our contention is that the risk in trusting the mail service for delivery of important documents seems to outway the nominal cost to e-file. But to each their own.
