Thanks. Since I prepare the return for the S-Corp by hand, it sounds like I have dodged the TT-Business bullet, and can get by with Premiere for the Schedule D....

Free now!

Got TT Premier download for free today (Flagship customer). Must be a new development in reaction to complaints.
Note on site says "this year only"; we'll deal with next year next year.
Happy New Year!

Note if you purchased the Deluxe version tt is offering a 1 time upgrade to premier for free. I did generate a schedule D but it says it can not be filed, with Deluxe.

Wonder if the people who paid $10 will get it back...

Wow, this whole thing is turning into quite a drama!

I decided to wait until this year before I figured out how to get my copy.

I hope I can get that download from Fidelity for free.

Dang it, that's $8 less than I paid, and Amazon changed their price-change rebate program down to 7 days! :|

TT made a bad marketing move, customers (like me) are moving to other vendors. I don't need Sched D but their actions made me re-evaluate whether or not they are a good value. I have been their customer from their first edition but will be using Tax Act this year.

An acquaintance of mine works for H&R Block during the tax season (retired CPA). She told me that they have invested big time in software for ACA rebates.

Thanks for the tip about VG flagship, I downloaded a free version of premier today. I don't do my own taxes but I'll probably play a bit to check out sensitivities to additional income and deductions of various types.

I suspect that you will not look back after moving to Tax Act. $17/year now and no frustrations.

I made the move over a decade ago when TT started damaging computers that also had Linux loaded due to their undocumented DRM features at the time.

I've used TT for over a decade. Just made the switch to TaxACT for 2014 thanks to the advice given in this thread.

Glad that I procrastinated on ordering and paying the extra $9.99 for the TT Premier version. Wonder how many folks @ Intuit lost their job over this mess?

Probably all the people who had little control over the decisions.

The initial response I received was along the line that he didn't understand the question but he seemed to not know that they had reduced the price of Premier for Flagship customers from $9.99 to nil so I clarified the question for him.

Wouldn't it be funny if we have the same guy. My guy's initials are RP.

Not the same guy, mine has initials SG. I only PM'ed him today so I don't expect a response until Monday.
