See the reviews for the details. First time I have ever seen TT with only 2 stars, and ~100% of those reviewing are mentioning this because it's not standard and they are furious.
Yes. FREE. I always get the CD version that includes one State.

I've posted this in the past, but it never hurts to offer a reminder.

For those in the Private Client group at Fidelity, sometimes the free TurboTax is automatic, sometimes it's not.

When members here say they got it (usually the middle of December), take a look at your account. You may be able to simply download it at no cost, but if not, give your Fido rep a call or email.

When I commented on it to mine a few years ago, he gave me a startled look and said "Oh, I didn't know you used it. I'll put you on the list."

Ever since then I've had the free deal.
I thought growing old would take longer.

Installed TurboTax 2018 Home & Business. Imported last year's data and confirmed. Entered a few key numbers, and see information flowing from form to form as expected so far. I update automatically, and will have no problem with the new layouts.
State is not ready, for us.

I'm not convinced the Turbotax snafu with not including the state returns has been completely fixed. I've been watching the Mac download option on Amazon, and while Intuit has posted some comments on reviews stating they have fixed the problem, I have not seen any reviewers confirm they have been able to receive the free state download.

In addition, the product keeps flipping back and forth from being available to not available. It is currently showing "Currently unavailable. We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock."

I believe this is due to the fact that they still have not successfully posted a version of the software that allows a free state download. This may be specific to the Mac version. I can't tell for sure. But I would steer clear of purchasing Turbotax, at least for the Mac, until further notice.

I'm relatively indifferent between Taxcut and Turbotax, but with Taxcut being $18.00 on Amazon, I see no point in bothering with Turbotax anymore.
