Do I need to upgrade my TurboTax to a different TurboTax product?

No, you don't need to upgrade to a different TurboTax product. All versions of TurboTax include all the forms and schedules you need to complete an accurate tax return.

Here are some factors to consider when deciding if an upgrade is right for you:

  • How complex is your tax situation?
  • How much help/guidance do you think you need to do your taxes?
  • Has your life changed in a way that you think might affect your tax return?

Each TurboTax product—Free, Basic, Standard, Premier, Self-Employed, or Home & Business—focuses on a different level of tax complexity and provides different levels of guidance.

To find out which TurboTax product is best for you, complete the following steps:

  1. Go to
  2. In the Tell us about you - we'll recommend the right product section, select all the boxes that apply to you.
  3. Select Show Recommendation.
