This year Quicken hit me with their every three year extortion to either upgrade Quicken or lose the ability to get on line information after March. Amazon had a deal where you got extra off their Quicken price if you also bought Turbo Tax. I think I paid about $10 to get TT Deluxe over the Amazon Quicken 2014 price.

TT Deluxe (disk version) has the full Schedule D which I need. It updated last years H&R Block tax info into this years return perfectly and it doesn't look any different than if I had used TT last year.

This is the answer TT is showing when I typed in schedule D: "Schedule D is for Capital Gains & Losses, if you need a Schedule D you would have to upgrade to the Premier version for Online."

Check this out for forms included/not included (click on forms tab): https://turbotax.intuit.com/personal...ine/deluxe.jsp

Note that this is the online version, which IMHO leaves you at least a little bit more open to hacking. The disk version which costs about $30 more provides this. The premier online costs $10 less than the deluxe cd version.

I need schedule E.

TaxAct = free

TT = Way too expensive IMO.

I see that. Has TT changed something? I am sure recall they didn't include Schedule D in the online version last I checked, about a week ago.

I think you caught Turbotax getting lost in all their marketing ploys. This link is enough to call customer support and demand an upgrade to an online version that includes Sch D (Premier or other), ask for the CD version of Deluxe or get a refund if you wish. Someone had to proof read this and they really screwed up.

Thanks so much; I called TT and they told me to keep using the Premier Package. They gave me a code to enter at the end in which I will only be charged for the Deluxe.

Note that premier is said to be able to help you recover a basis that you do not have (I guess it consults the on-line stock tables). This does become less necessary as time goes on and more and more investments fall under the covered rules.

I'm happy they gave you access to the forms you needed. Hopefully they admitted there was a problem and gave you an apology too.

Last year there was an issue w/the Fidelity Premiere online and it got posted to forums and thousands got in on the offer. I read that Turbotax handed out free codes for Premier until they got wind that people were illegally accessing this offer.
