I bought the other day, but if I look today at the link in the first post, the price for Home and Business is 99.99. I hit the refresh button several times and it showed up once as 84.99 and then 99.99. Funny site.

Oh cool, cheaper than Costco.

On the website it also said the following.

Some important changes for 2014 TurboTax: The 2014 TurboTax Deluxe will no longer be able to prepare Schedules C, D, E, or F. It will prepare a simple Schedule C-EZ for some people who qualify for that simpler form. The TurboTax Premier will no longer be able to prepare a full Schedule C or F, you would need to get the TurboTax Home Business. The Mac OS requirement for the Deluxe and Premier is 10.7.5 and above, Please purchase wisely, Thank you.
What circumstance would you need to file a Schedule C?. Rentals are covered under Schedule E, which I guess premier supports now.

If you already purchased Deluxe before realizing the functionality had changed, Intuit will upgrade you to Premier for free if you call them and request it.

Schedule C for self-employed folks.

I called them this morning, after waiting an hour for a rep, he said "Sorry, you'll still need to buy the upgrade to Premier". I was able to get Deluxe download last month and will have Fidelity reimburse me the $30 upgrade instead. After 2 weeks, they still can't figure out why I'm not getting Premier for free (still shows as $55) as a Private Client customer.

Try an email to this address TurboTax_Advocate@intuit.com asking for a free upgrade, suggesting you purchased the Deluxe version expecting the same functionality as last year.

That's another advantage of the H&R Block product: Schedule C (for self-employed folks) is included in their Premier version. Retail, It's about $50 less than the TT Home and Business that Intuit is trying to drive customers to buy. Plus, no "here now--gone tomorrow" prices, or seeing different prices depending on how you enter their web page, etc. I just think Intuit, or at least their marketing folks, are not very upfront with their prospective customers. And I don't think their practices will change, as we've seen this movie before.

Success! I gave your suggestion a shot, figured it couldn't hurt to send the email. After waiting all day with no response, I got a reply overnight to call the same number as before. Just calling them to complain about it wasn't enough, they needed an email complaint first?!?! They did verify that I received the email offer and that I actually downloaded Deluxe before sending me the upgrade. Thanks for the tip.

Now I need to figure out what to move around in my Fidelity account to re qualify for Premier since they have new requirements this year and it seems they used my account as a baseline to disqualify me. Apparently, being self employed is no longer considered a "workplace" to Fidelity.
