Thanks for the note about Fidelity.

Worked for me for a free download this morning, and as an instant savings. ER.org comes through again!

TT Deluxe price at $39.99 today at Amazon.

Might have to pull the trigger and buy just to get the purchase out of the way.

I may be mistaken, but I thought most here would need TT Premier to meet their tax needs.

After folks (properly so) last year cried bloody murder about the schedule D form missing in TT Deluxe, Intuit cried uncle and put the form back in for 2015 Deluxe. For me, Deluxe should work as the schedule D is what I really need that forced me to use Premier last year.

I went ahead and pulled the trigger. If I wait a few months, the price might drop even more, but might go back up too. I bought to get this done. I'll do some monitoring for next year's market timing .

Appears you're right for desktop version, but not Deluxe online version for 2015. However, I suspect most here use desktop versions. https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal...ompare/online/

...the odds of identity theft and having someone file a fraudulent tax return increases significantly. The sooner you file the better.

Thanks for pointing that out Midpack. I was only thinking desktop as that's what I use. Would be nice if Intuit was consistent to have Deluxe desktop and Deluxe online having the same features.

The ship already sailed for me on not having my tax identity stolen since that already happened in 2015.

I'm still waiting for the PIN for filing from the IRS which they are supposed to get to me by late December.

I still get Premier because it makes it easy to deal with employee options and ESPP. I could do it by hand, but it is just too easy to let TT do it. By the way, the ESPP/NQSO wizards used to be in Deluxe, but years ago they moved it. I guess that worked so well for Intuit they tried the same strategy last year on Sched D. And then a riot occurred.
One of the differences between Deluxe and Premier is "Additional Help for investment sales such as stocks, bonds, royalties, mutual funds and employee stock plans."

https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal...ompare/desktop

What is this Additional Help, more questions in the wizard so that it fills out the forms correctly?

I've been paying $10 as a Vanguard customer for the Premier so I wonder if I should stick with it, even thought I don't have any investment sales this year.

No, TT put Schedule D back into Deluxe after being pilloried over the change last year.

Except that last year there were retroactive tax law changes as late as March of 2015!

We really can't file until late March anyway.

Hmm, very tempting to try switching to Tax Cut:

It's just about half the price of TT Deluxe:

Amazon.com: H&R Block 2015 Deluxe + State Tax Software + Refund Bonus Offer - Windows Download: Software

But we're talking $20-30 and if there's any kind of glitch in importing my TT return and filling the correct forms overall ...

I switched to H&R Block last year and it imported all of my former TT data just fine. I won't be going back to TT after what they tried to pull.

Anyone know why the PC download is currently not available ?
Was able to download about a week ago @ $29.99

I also switched this year to H&R Block from TT.
