Does Turbotax Deluxe Include Schedule C Forms in 2016?

Does Turbotax Deluxe Include Schedule C Forms in 2016

Updated on January 20th, 2016: After last year’s fiasco where Turbotax surprised everyone and removed Schedule C Forms from the CD versions on the software, we’re happy to report that they are all back for 2016 (that is, in the 2015 tax-year versions of the software), including all those sold directly at Intuit and all those you’ll find sale priced at Amazon. That means all desktop version of Deluxe include full Schedule C, without any Misc Expenses limitations, and all the usual forms you’re used to from year’s past.

But where things get confusing is in the online version Turbotax Deluxe. That’s because even though it carries the same name as desktop/cd version, in 2016 it does not include full Schedule C (you’ll have a $100 limit in Misc. expenses before it requires to to upgrade to the Home & Business version). Remember, for investors and small business owners, the online version of TurboTax Deluxe also does not support Schedule D,E,F, or K-1 forms.

Here’s a complete look at the forms included in each of the versions:

So that’s why we recommend that you first see what forms you need before you purchase your tax software because in some cases you’ll be able to file for less using the desktop version or vice versa. Of course you can see a full page of TurboTax discounts now available to help you save even more (we update the page with our favorite TurboTax offers daily!).

What are your other filing options this tax season?

If your heart is not yet set on TurboTax (which, just so you know, is the #1 best selling tax software brand), then we encourage you to also see the promotions offered on H&R Block’s tax preparation software. They offer a very similar set of programs that are priced significantly less than equivalent TurboTax versions. Similar to TurboTax, there are four versions to choose from depending on the complexity of your return. All orders include offer free advice from a tax expert as many times as you need it and in-person audit support at one of your local H&R Block offices. You are also covered by their 100% accuracy and maximum refund guarantee.

Another option is to see if any TurboTax discount is available at your bank of credit union - Like at Bank of America, Citi, Chase, Capital One, or Vanguard. You can usually find more details through your online account or by visiting your favorite and nearest financial institution.
